Abstract:

All empires need, and if they are successful they achieve, a control over a diversity of ecologies. Colonization of the arid West was a significant challenge. What are the ways which water control in the West helped unite Montana and this region to the rest of the nation? What parallels may be drawn between the history of federal and state water control in the West with the development and water policies in China, including the massive Three Gorges Dam Project? Additionally, are our imperial cultures ideally suited to the more modest goal of living in ecological harmony with our waters and lands? Questions and answers follow.
