In a seamless mix of theory and practice it provides detailed theoretical discussions as well as empirical studies of different river systems around the world, highlighting the role and possibilities of future cooperation. The book will be a fundamental text for academics and researchers as well as civil engineers and government organizations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Focusing on international political aspects of water supply rights, 21 original papers treat the twin themes of the implications and resolutions of water resource management issues and cooperative opportunities and challenges. Chatterji (State U. of New York at Binghamton) provides a substantial introduction to international watercourses, the conflicts inherent in water supply and consumption inequalities, and international efforts to avert such through conflict management analysis. Another editor, with a water commission in the Middle East, represents a major area with a contested water sector. The final paper overviews emerging concepts in ecological humanism based on Gandhian principles. Lacks an index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
