Review:

'What makes this book unique is that it draws from the author's two decades of hands-on experience in the design of approaches and solutions, in seeing them implemented and in evaluating their success, all in all enabling him to better diagnose the problem and better identify choices for solutions.' Professor Mohammed al-Eryani, founding Minister of Water and Environment, Republic of Yemen ' The author has kept a promise that so many fail to deliver - an impressively nuanced analysis of a political economy with arguably the most difficult water resource challenges in the world.' Tony Allan, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London and Emeritus Professor of Geography, King's College London 'All you need to know about the water problems of a near-waterless Middle Eastern country. A clear-eyed, helpful work by a wise man who obviously knows what is wrong and what needs to be done about it.' Roger Owen, A.J. Meyer Professor of Middle East History, Harvard University
