Product Description

Review

The risk of conflict over water is growing ever more severe, and here, at last, is a book that analyzes water through the lens of international peace and security. Brahma Chellaney performs an invaluable service by identifying the multiple causes of global water stress and showing what must be done if conflict over scarce and contested supplies is to be averted. -- Michael Klare, Hampshire College

Brahma Chellaney's Water, Peace, and War is the first work to make water the center of its concern and to argue that water is emerging as a more important issue for the fate of mankind than population growth, food supply, pollution, peak oil, other 'peak' commodities, and climate change. The author's writing is fluid, and complex materials are handled with clarity. This is an excellent contribution to a tradition of important works that have argued in one way or another that the world faces some kind of ecological crisis. -- Andrew Nathan, Columbia University

Frightened about terrorism? Proliferation? Big Power rivalries? You had better start worrying about water. Brahma Chellaney tells you why, in a tour de force sweeping in its breadth, staggering in its detail, and sobering in its analysis. -- Robert M. Hathaway, Woodrow Wilson Center

A riveting guide to a key international challenge 19 April 2013
By Vakratunda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Brahma Chellaney's last book, Water: Asia's New Battleground, won the 2012 Bernard Schwartz Award for its pioneering research. This new book also promises to be a trailblazing volume.

This riveting guide to a pressing international challenge is thematically structured, with each chapter focused on a key theme. It begins with an overview of the sharpening international competition over natural resources before concentrating on the water-related issues. The author's style is lucid, compelling, and sophisticated. Blending materials from natural and social sciences, the book offers policy and investment recommendations on how to mitigate the water crisis. It is a must-read for investors, policymakers, scholars and university students.
