Abstract:

Water management, pollution, the dying of coral reefs, the privatization of drinking water, and the melting of the ice caps are only some of the critical interrelated water issues facing humankind in the 21st Century. This four-volume encyclopedia brings together contributors from the full range of disciplines concerned with the science, politics, and economics of water, presenting some 300 alphabetical entries that explain disparate issues and topics in laymen's language. Examples include "markets, water;" "Mars, water on;" "oceanography from space;" Cousteau, Jacques;" and "Safe Drinking Water Act." As evidence by the last, non-global legal or political issues are generally limited to an American context. A useful glossary containing common terms is included in each of the volumes. Color photographs, charts, and maps illustrate the material.
