Cadillac Desert: The American West and Its Disappearing Water, Revised Edition - Paperback

ISBN: 0140178244

[SR: 11697], Paperback, [EAN: 9780140178241], Penguin Books, Penguin Books, Book, [PU: Penguin Books], 1993-06-01, Penguin Books, "The definitive work on the West's water crisis." --NewsweekThe story of the American West is the story of a relentless quest for a precious resource: water. It is a tale of rivers diverted and dammed, of political corruption and intrigue, of billion-dollar battles over water rights, of ecological and economic disaster. In his landmark book, Cadillac Desert, Marc Reisner writes of the earliest settlers, lured by the promise of paradise, and of the ruthless tactics employed by Los Angeles politicians and business interests to ensure the city's growth. He documents the bitter rivalry between two government giants, the Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in the competition to transform the West. Based on more than a decade of research, Cadillac Desert is a stunning expose and a dramatic, intriguing history of the creation of an Eden--an Eden that may only be a mirage., The definitive history of water resources in the American West, and a very illuminating lesson in the political economy of limited resources anywhere.
