"Water is the stuff of life" as someone once said, and this book discusses the role of water in the Middle East- always an area of contention. This book is a series of papers presented at the 2nd Israeli-Palestinian International Conference on Water for Life. This is a rare example of Israeli-Palestinian cooperation and working in harmony on mutual problems. Areas of discussion are the geopolitical water problems of the region; the Jordan River and the Dead Sea; water trade and water markets; water importation; conflict resolution and co-operation; international water law; water resources management; the impact of climate change on the region; waste and wastewater technology in the Middle East. This book has a number of graphs, charts and maps that show the data on water extraction, resources and usage. This kind of data is often difficult to find for this region, and is a welcome addition to this book. This book is recommened for anyone interested in the water issues of the Middle East, or the Israel-Palestinian conflicts. As water resources become more scarce, it is encouraging to see the cooperation between these diverse populations to handle a common need.
