These three volumes present an original exploration of all aspects of water - social, cultural, political, religious, historical, economic and technological - from ancient times until the present day. Among the varied themes, the contributors examine the changing histories of water as a private or common good, the politics of water at local, urban, national and international level. With empirical and ethnographic case studies from around the world the three volumes together represent one of the most complete and up to date accounts of the central role of water in the history and development of humanity.

Review:

'Each of the 29 individual chapters can stand alone as an effective presentation of the history of water development within a city or region and provide resources for student or faculty research. The chapters are well referenced and adequately illustrated with maps, drawings and photographs.' --T. J. Kroeger, CHOICE
