The Politics of Water in the Middle East

An Israeli Perspective on the Hydro-Political Aspects of the Conflict


About this book


Will the flames of war in the Middle East be fanned or quenched by water? This is the central question addressed by this unusually forthright book. The book provides sobering analyses of Israel's water predicament and of the hydro-political implications for the country, particularly in the light of recent developments in the 'peace process'.
