Cech 2003), I have argued that through the 6000 years of history of water governance a number of different converging forces are visible (see Table 1). These are the forces of the development of civilizations (. Water resources protection and management are urgently needed for dealing with the contradiction between water supply and demand in coal mines in northern China .. The book concludes that the enhanced collaboration and coordination between networks that has emerged in the process of low carbon transitions is transforming the Chinese environmental state into a more pluralistic, inclusive and legitimate one.

I can't get over the lack of color. A book about something as beautiful as rivers, etc. and every picture is black and white. Every one. I would have paid more to have some color. There is a lot of good information. I especially enjoy the extra information in the book about historical events.

Better than buying book for classes, good value.
Memuro
The book doesn't define terms well but it is an easy read, overall.

This book covers all aspects of water development in the US, with special emphasis on issues affecting the western US. Chapters cover water issues from history to diversion projects to water treatment and beyond. Well written, with lots of good case histories and thorough explanations for the non-scientist and the scientist alike.

The content of this book is fantastic. It covers all the areas of water quality and is layed out very nicely so its easy to read and follow (as easy as reading textbooks can be). I was disapointed that the second time I used the book the binding fell apart.
This is a very interesting read pertaining to the water in our natural world.
