Summary
"Through case studies, opposing viewpoints, and primary documents, this reference work examines the environmental and sustainability issues regarding water as well as how water is an intrinsic part of human culture. Presents a variety of resources and multidisciplinary perspectives on water in a single book. Offers opposing viewpoints on current world water issues that enable readers to consider these problems from political, cultural, economic, and scientific vantage points. Documents how some practical necessities regarding our global water problems are in conflict with established cultural tradition and values."
