About this book

This original analysis of the Middle East water problems highlights questions and issues which have so far only received minimal attention. The author develops a multi-layered account of the nature and causes of the conflict and the Pealestinian water crisis. Each chapter addresses a particular aspect of the Israeli-Palestine water conflict and the author uses these to illustrate both the broader nature of Israeli-Palestinian relations and factors that the existing water literature underplays or simply gets wrong.

...throws a careful eye on the more general political and structural context in which the conflict has emerged... points out some practical and political implications. -Maritza Cricorian, International Spectator International Affairs, Vol. 81, No. 4. Review by Emma Murphy: 'There is much of merit in this book... the real value... lies not in its theory but in the empirical material which brings to life the impact of Israeli water policies on Palestinian lives.'
