Linton presents the issues in impressive breadth and depth, and tells a compelling story. Recommended. -- Choice I.D. Sasowsky, University of Akron Linton's message needs to be taken seriously by anyone for whom water is something more than so many molecules of H2O ... it is a message that should be incorporated into both introductory and advanced courses in a number of disciplines dealing not only with water but with all natural resources. -- David B. Brooks, Fresh Water, Friends of the Earth, Canada Critical Policy Studies, Vol. 4, No. 4 The publication of Jamie Linton's superb monograph, What is Water?, provides an opportunity to consider the development of relational and dialectical thought within geography and especially how this has developed around the subject of water. -- Alex Loftus, Department of Geography, Royal Holloway, University of London The Geographical Journal Jamie Linton's excellent analysis fills a gap in the understanding of our conceptions of water. His critiques of the water crisis and the new paradigm of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) are simply brilliant and long overdue. The book is easy to read for an audience new to the literature on water from a social science perspective. -- Olivier Graefe, University of Fribourg Social & Cultural Geography
The book demonstrates, in a clear and concise fashion, the ways in which contemporary social relationships with water have constituted a crisis. The subject is of fundamental importance, and the author's emphasis on the need to posit environmental concerns within a socio—natural understanding is vital.(Alex Loftus, University of London) See all Product Description
