Overview

This book is about crime and passion, life and death, lofty goals and squalid realities. It is a book about water. Global disparities in health and access to water are two major threats to world stability. As international contracts and corporate agreements divert water from small communities to supply larger cities, from households to supply agribusiness, conflicts sharpen among local communities, national governments and international agencies over the basic resources to support human life. In this book, leading anthropologists illuminate the global political inequities and resource management techniques that cause children to die and adults to sicken. Designed for use by policymakers as well as researchers and students, the essays present complex realities in clear, accessible terms. North America: School for Advanced Research Press
