Encompassing ecological, historical, and cultural perspectives, de Villiers reports from hot spots as diverse as China, Las Vegas, and the Middle East, where swelling populations and unchecked development have stressed fresh water supplies nearly beyond remedy. Political struggles for control of water rage around the globe, and rampant pollution daily poses dire ecological theats. With one eye on these looming crises and the other on the history of our dependence on our planets most precious commodity, de Villiers has crafted a powerful narrative about the lifeblood of civilizations that will be a wake-up call for concerned citizens, environmentalists, policymakers, and water drinkers everywhere (Publishers Weekly).
