Contents Notes
"This volume presents a series of case studies from around the world that examine the complex culture and power dimensions of water resources and management. Chapters describe highly contentious cases that span the continuum of concerns from dam construction and hydroelectric power generation to water quality and potable water systems. They address the values and meanings associated with water and how changes in power result in changes both in meaning and in patterns of use, access, and control."--Jacket.
