Water and American Government by Donald J. Pisani
Book DescriptionDonald Pisani's history of perhaps the boldest economic and social program ever undertaken in the United States - to reclaim and cultivate vast areas of previously unusable land across the country - shows in fascinating detail how ambitious government programs fall prey to the power of local interest groups and the federal system of governance itself. What began as the underwriting of a variety of projects to create family farms and farming communities had become by the 1930s a massive public works and regional development program, with an emphasis on the urban as much as on the rural West.
