Water - The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power and Civilization
Solomon, Steven
$24.00
Far more than oil, the control of water wealth throughout history has been pivotal to the rise and fall of great powers, the achievements of civilization, the transformations of society's vital habitats, and the quality of ordinary daily lives. Today, fresh-water scarcity is one of the 21st century's decisive, looming challengers, driving new political, economic, and environmental realities across the globe. In Water, esteemed journalist Steven Solomon describes a terrifying - and all too real - world in which access to fresh water has replaced oil as the primary cause of global conflicts that increasingly emanate from drought-ridden, overpopulated areas of the world. Meticulously researched and undeniably prescient, Water is a stunningly clear-eyed action statement on what Robert F Kennedy, Jr. calls “the biggest environmental and political challenge of our time.”
