We think we understand what water is, but its very familiarity often keeps us from comprehending its true nature. This book looks at the various meanings water has, exploring its significance as a life-giving symbol, as a subject of modern scientific controversy, and as a crucially important resource in our modern industrial society. Included are discussions of the debates among scientists as to the physico-chemical properties of water, the crisis created by water pollution and deterioration of the environment, and the promise of powerful new methods for water purification.
