Description

Illustrated with case studies which explain key concepts and provide practical examples, this book provides a detailed and comprehensive introduction to water management issues from a European perspective. The book begins with a brief history of water management, followed by a consideration of the major frameworks used for managing water in its qualitative and quantitative aspects. Several chapters treat key water management issues, including; dams, privatization, hydropolitics, climate change and finally provides a synoptic treatment of major water management issues across Europe's geographical regions.

Reviews

'For those seeking an accessible, informative, critical and comprehensive account as to why we should take Water more seriously, look no further. This book offers a compelling, richly documented, engaging and, above all, committed account of past achievements, present contentions and future challenges in the domain of European water.' Erik Swyngedouw, University of Manchester, UK
