A multi-disciplinary analysis of the evolution of water politics and policy by an international team of distinguished experts. Water management in the Middle Ages in Europe, its evolution in the USA, the elaboration of the European Water Framework Directive, the British experience of watermanagement, the over-exploitation of African aquifers, and the evolution of the water situation in Southern Africa are all examined.This volume underlines the fact that only an integrative and interdisciplinary understanding can lead to genuinely improved water management practices that will not benefit some social groups at the expense of others.
Julie Trottier is a Lecturer, Department of Politics, University of Newcastle upon Tyne. Paul Slack is a Principal of Linacre College and Professor of Early Modern Social History, University of Oxford.
