Media reviews
'This excellent, readable and timely study will be of great value to a wide audience: international relations scholars, Middle East specialists, hydrologists, environmental scholars and those concerned generally with resource conflicts.' International Affairs '[The] work offers insight not only on a regional matter of complexity and importance, but also on the problems faced in many parts of the world where political issues transcend lines drawn on maps.' Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Secretary General of the United Nations 'Using the dispute between Israel and its Arab neighbours over the waters of the Jordan River as a case study, Miriam R. Lowi has given us an excellent analysis of this intractable problem ...' Robert G. Gilpin, Princeton University
