The Struggle for Water Politics, Rationality, and Identity in the American Southwest
- Binding: Paperback

In the 1970s, the three groups most intimately involved in the Orme Dam -- younger Bureau of Reclamation employees committed to "rational choice" decision making, older Bureau engineers committed to the dam, and the Yavapai community -- all found themselves and their values transformed by their struggles. Wendy Nelson Espeland lays bare the relations between interests and identities that emerged during the conflict, creating a contemporary tale of power and colonization, bureaucracies and democratic practice, that asks the crucial question of what it means to be "rational".
