What People are saying about this

Stephen P. Mumme

This book should inspire a good deal of debate. The significance of this work is that it directs scholarly attention to the importance of understanding and searching for practices that operate outside the conventional mechanisms for settling transboundary water disputes.

Juliann Allison

The editors of and contributors to Reflections on
Water
provide an important service by illuminating the ways in which network analysis, discourse analysis, ethnography, and social ecology can help us to understand governance in an increasingly 'glocalized' world. The book is distinctive not only in that it addresses the decentralization of environmental policymaking in a novel manner but also in that it takes on a single issue and multiple related methods of analysis.
