This is a history of the hydropolitics of the Nile Valley from 1900 to 1988. Attempts to develop the Nile and control its waters are of vital significance to the future of the inhabitants of Egypt, the Sudan, Ethiopia, and East Africa. Acute drought and heavy flooding in the Nile Basin have brought disaster in the past, and the history of the area is the story of human effort to control the precious waters of the river. Written by a distinguished authority in the field, this highly interdisciplinary study will appeal to those interested in the environment, politics, third world development, anthropology, zoology, and economic history.

Review:

'Professor Collins' magisterial historical survey of the Nile debate from the beginning of this century should be essential background reading for all those concerned.' Paul Howell, Journal of African History, Volume 33, 1992 'he waters of the Nile describes with obvious relish the lands and plans, dams and personalities of a highly technical subject, and makes it accessible to the general reader.' M.W. Daly, SOAS Bulletin 'As an historical account which manages to maintain a sense of suspense and which is able to tell a story in a lucid and flowing way the book succeeds.' A. Trilsbach, African Affairs 'sound and well-written review of the history of the upper Nile ... The historical material is well researched ... The author has made his story extremely readable and it will also appeal to those who read non-fiction about the travellers. officials and engineers of the imperial past. The book is the best in the field ... an excellent book and a fine example of how historical material can be made relevant to contemporary affairs.' J.A. Allan, University of London, Africa 60/4
