Mixing the Waters: Environment, Politics, and the Building of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway
[Stine] has likely written the definitive history of the navigation project. The analysis is balanced and thoroughly researched, and captures the nuances of changing values and attitudes toward pork-barrel politics, benefit-cost evaluation, and interest group politics in American natural resource policy from the 1930s through the early 1980s. –Choice
A study that is competently written and deeply researched, with heavy emphasis on primary sources, a solid grounding in the existing secondary literature, and a welcome leaven of oral history. It is a model monograph, which should find an audience not only among public historians, whose craft it exemplifies, but also among makers of policy in the construction and environmental agencies whose concerns it treats with insight and generally admirable balance. –The Public Historian
