From the Inside Flap: "As the chapters in this book so clearly demonstrate, we are a long way from a reliable and sustainable water system. Fortunately, successful alternatives exist and are waiting for the opportunity to blossom."
--from the Afterword by Peter H. Gleick, Pacific Institute

There is a wealth of good information here, which makes it a useful resource for academics, resource managers, and policymakers.?
--Suzanne Dallman, former President of the Long Beach Board of Water Commissioners and Professor of Geography at CSU Long Beach

This volume would work very well in a classroom setting, but it also has value as a text for current water professionals. The writing is very accessible and the topic undoubtedly timely.?
--Douglas Kenney, Director of the Western Water Policy Program at the University of Colorado, Boulder and coauthor of The Water-Energy Nexus in the American West
