Dam Nation: Hydroelectric Developments in Canada

In 2016 I organized a series – titled Dam Nation: Hydroelectric Developments in Canada – on the history of hydro dams that are currently hot topics. The series included posts by Tina Loo, David Massell, and Caroline Desbiens, and I provided an Introduction, all of which can be found here:

Announcing Border Flows: A Century of the Canadian-American Water Relationship

Co-edited by Lynne Heasley and myself, this edited collection looks at a range of Canada-US border waters. I co-authored the Introduction, and contributed a chapter (on the St. Lawrence and Niagara Rivers) and a reflection chapter. The book is available for purchase, but one of the main reasons we decided to do this book in the NiCHE-UCP Canadian History and Environment series was that it is open access – meaning that you can also download it for free!
