Summary "In these times of growing interest in climate change, with its potential to affect supplies of one of the world's major natural resources, this volume aims to provide an extensive overview of the politics of water. Chapters offer an overview of various topics in the field, while the thorough glossary section contains a wealth of explanations to, and information on, water issues, terms, law and organizations. A section dedicated to the world's major river basins further informs on issues affecting water supply and use, and maps and statistics offer graphic and cartographic representations for reference."--P. 4 of cover.
