About this book

De Villiers reports from hot spots as diverse as China, Las Vegas and the Middle East, where he has crafted a powerful narrative about the lifeblood of civilizations, the global consequences of human thirst, and solutions that may avert the coming water wars.

"Water is emerging as one of the central issues of this new century. Marq de Villiers presents in this book a compelling and engrossing account of why this is so, what it means to us, and what we must do about it. It is timely, authoritative, and eminently readable."
– Maurice Strong, Chairman of the Earth Council
