Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book takes a comparative approach to examine water management in five countries with a significant portion of arid landmass … . This is an excellent resource for graduate students, academics, managers, and policy makers who are interested in or who deal with arid and semi-arid regions, as well as those who simply wish to deepen their understanding of these important ecosystems. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students and above.” (R. L. Wallace, Choice, Vol. 51 (8), April, 2014)
