"A very welcome examination of the water industry and its peculiarities. There is a good long-term survey of the structure of the industry through its successive phases before privatization, including the corporatization and nationalization of the postwar period. The real strength lies in Bakker's attempt to link history, economics, geography, and environment in charting the contours of the industry and its future."--Economic History Review
