      I read a book for a history class called: The Artificial River: The Erie Canal and the Paradox of Progress, Definitely more of a history book as opposed to an engineering book on how the canal was built, but definitely worth the read to realize the impact the canal had on society at the time.   The United States acquirectthe land from which the Canal was gouged much the same fashion that the Europeans gained many of their imperial possessions: through a combination of chicanery and force.

      A New York Times Notable BookThe compelling behind-the-scenes story of the greatest swindler of the Gilded Age, whose villainy bankrupted Ulysses S. Grant and stunned the world of finance—told by his great-grandson, award-winning historian Geoffrey C. Ward.&#   “[Koeppel] takes his readers behind the scenes of political chicanery at several levels to show how support for the canal project often had little to do with a backer's ulterior motives.” Tucson Citizen, 4/9/09 “This comprehensive history is lively, well researched and written by an author with a real talent for genuine story telling.”.

        Mulholland and his big money backers were able to convince the city leaders and voters that the aqueduct was the solution to a real problem. To overcome the opposition, Mulholland, with the help of the LA Times, spun a narrative that voters believed: this pure mountain water would ensure Los Angeles’s helped, too, that thirst afflicts voters at all levels of society. Directed by Alfred E. Green. With George Arliss, Doris Lloyd, David Torrence, Joan Bennett. Prime Minister of Great Britain Benjamin Disraeli outwits the subterfuge of the Russians and chicanery at home in order to secure the purchase of the Suez Canal.
