Product description

Review

The scope of Salzmans book is impressive, encompassing everything from the construction of Roman aqueducts to subsidised water purification in Zambia --New Scientist

James Salzmans book is a look at this everyday commodity most of us take for granted and which proves, on further examination, to be far from unremarkable after all --Scotsman

A subject that concerns us all and [Salzmans] stories are colourful enough to keep you turning the page This book is a wake-up call for all of us --Mail on Sunday

About the Author

James Salzman is Professor of Law and Environmental Studies at Duke University and has written extensively on the topics of environmental conservation, population growth and climate change. He has lectured on environmental policy worldwide and served as the European Environmental Manager for S.C. Johnson. He lives in North Carolina.
