Gestwa's book draws on five case studies, all of them hydrological: the Volga-Don Canal (completed in 1952), the Kuibyshev reservoir and its hydroelectric station (1957), the Volgograd reservoir (1961), the Novosibirsk reservoir (part of a larger Ob River reclamation project that never materialized), and the Bratsk hydroelectric power station, the largest project of its kind worldwide until it was surpassed in size by another Soviet project in 1970.
