"A Twenty- First Century US Water Policy
is refreshingly forward-looking, almost exclusively emphasizing water policy. That is, it is a book that offers solutions." --Great Plains Research
"We are overdue for a wide-ranging national debate over use and conservation of our dwindling water resources. This book frames the issues and makes insightful and innovative suggestions for the directions we should take." --Bruce Babbitt, former United States Secretary of the Interior
"It is the great achievement of Peter Gleick, long our foremost water policy thinker, and of Juliet Christian-Smith to transform the bewildering diversity and chaos that is current US water policy into a clear, comprehensive vision of the big issues and challenges defining the new water landscape. This is a must-read book and essential point-of-reference for anyone involved in water issues." --Steven Solomon, author of Water: The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power, and Civilization (Finalist, L.A. Times Book Prize)
"A Twenty-First Century U.S. Water Policy
is certainly being published at an auspicious time, and its recommendations deserve serious consideration." --Brett Walton, Circle of Blue
"[The authors] clearly lay out the problem and, unlike many other writers, provide readers with solutions, which makes this book an invaluable resource. Highly recommended." --CHOICE
