6 BILLINGTON, DAVID P. & DONALD C. JACKSON Big Dams Of The New Deal Era: A Confluence Of Engineering And Politics.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2006. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The massive dams of the American West were designed to serve multiple purposes: improving navigation, irrigating crops, storing water, controlling floods, and generating hydroelectricity. Their construction also put thousands of people to work during the Great Depression. Only later did the dams' baneful effects on river ecologies spark public debate. Big Dams of the New Deal Era tells how major water-storage structures were erected in four western river basins. David P. Billington and Donald C. Jackson reveal how engineering science, regional and national politics, perceived public needs, and a river's natural features intertwined to create distinctive dams within each region. In particular, the authors describe how two federal agencies, the Army Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation, became key players in the creation of these important public works. By illuminating the mathematical analysis that supported large-scale dam construction, the authors also describe how and why engineers in the 1930s most often opted for massive gravity dams, whose design required enormous quantities of concrete or earth-rock fill for stability. Richly illustrated, Big Dams of the New Deal Era offers a compelling account of how major dams in the New Deal era restructured the landscape—both politically and physically—and why American society in the 1930s embraced them wholeheartedly. 131 black-and-white iIllustrations, Hardcover, 416 pages, 7" x 10". David P. Billington, a Fellow of the National Academy of Engineering, is Gordon Y. S. Wu Professor of Engineering at Princeton University. Donald C. Jackson is Professor of History at Lafayette College, Easton, Pennsylvania, and is the author of Great American Bridges and Dams. "A book all students of water resource development should read."—Donald J. Pisani, author of Water and American Government: The Reclamation Bureau, National Water Policy, and the West, 1902-1935

How were they built? How were they designed? What body of knowledge existed hundreds and thousands of years ago to create such masterpieces of architecture, weaponry, and engineering? And who were the people who left these wonders behind? Includes an Index. "Mr. de Camp has the trick of being able to show technology engaging in feats as full of derring-do as those of Hannibal's army . . . history as it should be told, both in content and in style." - Isaac Asimov, The New York Times Book Review
