The story of water is fascinating, complex, with roots as deep as civilization. Despite its profound, life-giving role in our planets history, what we hear about it today is mostly bad news: The worlds supply is severely at risk. Were reminded ofMoreThe story of water is fascinating, complex, with roots as deep as civilization. Despite its profound, life-giving role in our planets history, what we hear about it today is mostly bad news: The worlds supply is severely at risk.

Were reminded of this daily, with word of another drought, or alarming statistics about pollution, population growth, and climate changes, which together threaten to make water, even more than oil, the cause of war within our life time. Why have we allowed something so elemental to our existence to drift into such a precarious state?

And what can we do to change the course were on? Water Wars seeks the answers to these urgent questions in the places where the struggle to control water has been most intense. After a decade of traveling and reporting on five continents, Diane Raines Ward has produced an intimate look at the worlds most embattled water regions, as well as the most inspiring advocates to emerge from them.

Each has a compelling story to tell.
