Concentrating on globalization within the past due 19th and early 20th centuries, Jessica Teisch examines the procedures wherein American water and mining engineers who rose to prominence in the course of and after the California Gold Rush of 1849 exported the U.S.' becoming technical and environmental wisdom and linked social and political associations. within the frontiers of Australia, South Africa, Hawaii, and Palestine--semiarid areas that shared a necessity for water to aid growing to be populations and economies--California water engineers utilized their services in irrigation and mining initiatives on behalf of international governments and company interests.
Engineering Nature explores how controlling the vagaries of nature overseas required greater than the export of blueprints for dams, canals, or mines; it additionally entailed the complicated move of the recent technology's sociopolitical context. Water engineers faced unexpected variables in every one zone as they labored to enforce their visions of agrarian cost and business development, together with the position of the industry, govt associations, estate rights, indigenous peoples, exertions, and, no longer final, the surroundings. Teisch argues that via interpreting the successes and screw ups of assorted tasks as American impact unfold, we will see the complicated function of globalization at paintings, frequently with tremendously disproportionate results.
