Outstanding accounting of Real American History [and no, Chinatown was a fictionalized presentation mixed with several facts, which the scriptwriter has long ago mentioned] and a real American Engineer, Irish immigrant and stalwart and intrepid William Mulholland.
Very interesting, and very necessary to understand the building of a major city.
Well written book that sets the record straight about William Mulholland as a visionary public servant. Contrary to the 'Chinatown' popular image of corruption in the creation of the Los Angeles aqueduct, this book presents the real history revealing Mulholland as the people's hero, looking out that LA's waterworks remain in public hands and out of the hands of profiteers who wanted to rip off taxpayers of LA. This story supports the efficiency of the public commons (government) over the corruption of Privatization that was and is the Conservative agenda.
