The study identified that domestic politics, regional dynamics and international water regimes are major . The book covers several case studies: early riparian disputes, the Jordan waters crisis of 1964 and the Jordan Basin since 1967.

The study identified that domestic politics, regional dynamics and international water regimes are major determinant factors making cooperation to be a fantasy. Israel's doctrine of exceptionalism both in the sense of statehood and government type and the reciprocated denial of co-basin states in this regard are domestic political factors that impede the course cooperative events. Israel's geopolitical calculations via territorial expansion alongside of the Jordan River affect the cooperative milieu.

Water politics in the Jordan River basin refers to political issues of water within the Jordan River drainage basin, including competing claims and water usage.

Water politics in the Jordan River basin refers to political issues of water within the Jordan River drainage basin, including competing claims and water usage, and issues of riparian rights of surface water along transnational rivers, as well as the availability and usage of ground water.

to upgrading the brackish flow of Jordan River water, and to protecting the .

The Jordan-Israel treaty puts its two signatories far ahead of the other riverine states of the region in resolving often tough, intractable problems in the Euphrates, Litani, Nile, Tigris, and other Mideast water systems.

The study is underpinned by the significance of pivotal riparian states. Based on their preeminence in determining the course of cooperation, the study considers Israel, Jordan and Palestine as pivotal riparian states. The finding of study shows that, domestic politics, regional dynamics and international water regimes are indeed determinant factors for the cooperative and conflictive nature of water sharing in the basin. The level of their impact however is neither equal nor constant.

Lowi's book is such an important contribution, since it encapsulates the main issues and historical developments . Peter L. Doan, Digest of Middle East Studies.

Lowi's book is such an important contribution, since it encapsulates the main issues and historical developments between its covers and stresses the real diplomatic difficulties inherent in such complex situations. The Journal of Conflict Studies. Although there have been a number of studies of the Jordan River dispute, none interweaves analysis of the terms of that dispute with the larger Arab-Israeli conflict as successfully as this on. F. Tachau, Social & Behavioral Sciences.

As in the Jordan River basin, in the Euphrates, Indus, and Nile basins, there has been conflict among the riparian states .

As in the Jordan River basin, in the Euphrates, Indus, and Nile basins, there has been conflict among the riparian states over the allocation and utilization of the rivers' waters. All four riparian disputes are located in arid or semi-arid regions, where resource scarcity is a fact of life. In all four cases and for some or all of the riparians, dependence on the river system is great. As noted in chapter 1, basin-wide, integrated development has been advocated as the optimal means for sharing the waters of an international river, especially in situations of acute need. However, in none of the cases have the basin states elected this approach.
