Summary
  • "Tapping into sources in Canada, the United States, and Europe, David Massell tells a story of American capital and Canadian resources. He shows how the infusion of massive amounts of capital yielded unparalleled and sophisticated applications of new hydroelectric technology. In turn, in encroaching on local water rights and farmers' lands, these grand industrial plans drew the attention of the state and led to a protracted power struggle between public and private interests - between American capitalists and the nascent bureaucracy of the province of Quebec. Massell describes the origins and evolution of the events that led to state control over hydraulic resources in the province and laid the foundation for the industrialization of the region. In doing so he provides portraits of J.B
  • Duke and Quebec politicians of the period and gives an account of the protracted battle of wits between Duke's chief engineer, William States Lee, and Quebec's chief of Hydraulic Service, Arthur Amos."--Jacket
