Nature Conservancy Magazine, Recommended Reading and Review, Autumn 2010 Steven Solomon’s WATER: The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power, and Civilization.
Excerpt: Steven Solomon relays the history of what is arguably Earth’s most precious resources. When Solomon traveled to Kenya in 2004, he witnessed firsthand the crippling effect that a lack of water can have on a family, a community, a society. Thus he views water as an “agent of change” and “man’s most indispensable natural resource”…Solomon’s comprehensive history looks at the importance of water from the earliest civilizations to the rise of Europe, from the Industrial Revolution to today, a period he calls the “Age of Scarcity”. As human population approaches 9 billion, he says, water is an every more precious, ever more limited resource.
