Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Balanced and readable account of environment v.s economic abstraction of water for irrigation, with historical and legal perspective.
Useful insight for New Zealand's current irrigation debate where laws protecting this country's water resosurces are being undermined by politicians.

Format: Paperback
All living things need water, and no one knows this more than farmers. "Water War in the Klamath Basin: Maco Law, Combat Biology, and Dirty Politics" is a look at the drought of 2001, and how the conservation-minded policy makers were set at odds with the farmers - who needed all the water they could get to keep their livelihood alive. A thorough examination of a heavily debated issue, "Water War in the Klamath Basin" is an essential pick for academic and community library environmental studies collections and supplemental reading lists.
