The Middle East Water Question: Hydropolitics and the Global Economy
Tony Allan (author)

  • Paperback | In Stock | £25.00

Description

Is there enough water on this planet for a global population that will shortly double its present size? The answer is of huge importance for people everywhere, but particularly to the peoples and political leaders of the Middle East and North Africa. As well as explaining the particular issues of conflict in the region, Allan argues that the answer to these problems lies at the global rather than local level. The Middle East Water Question is a major book by one of the world's leading authorities on water issues.

Review

Water Resources Development:"

likely to usher in a new generation of hydropolitical research" Geographical Journal:"

challenges traditional basin and regional scale approaches to hydro-political analysis of North Africa and the Middle East(MENA)""

provides a more satisfying and, indeed, compelling approach to understanding MENA Water perceptions and policies." Contemporary Review:"

This study, which should be required reading for any student of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, shows the complex and underlying factor behind the struggles over land: the need for water."
