Editorial Reviews

Review

"Seventeen essays describe the bottled water industry and agriculture's water practices, review the history of dams and America's water supply infrastructure, and lobby for the global water justice movement. The editor, who writes for AlterNet, adds color diagrams illustrating conflicts over water, diseases spread through water, and drinking water supplies in different countries. Color photographs of water bodies and art pieces from a New York exhibition are provided."

Well written. Very informative. Great background material for reports but organized and written in a way which presents this very important issue with factual information.
