Power and Water in the Middle East: The Hidden Politics of the Palestinian-Israeli Water Conflict

Availability: Ready to download

Power and Water in the Middle East provides a powerful new perspective on the Palestinian-Israeli water conflict. Adopting a new approach to understanding water conflict - hydro-hegemony- the author shows the conflict to be much more deeply entrenched than previously thought and reveals how existing tactics to control water are leading away from peace and towards continued Power and Water in the Middle East provides a powerful new perspective on the Palestinian-Israeli water conflict. Adopting a new approach to understanding water conflict - hydro-hegemony- the author shows the conflict to be much more deeply entrenched than previously thought and reveals how existing tactics to control water are leading away from peace and towards continued domination and a squandering of this vital resource.                                                                                                 Exisiting theories tend to play down the negative effects of non-violent water conflicts, and what is often presented as co-operation between countries hides a deep imbalance and underlying state of conflict between them. Mark Zeitoun's important work shows how the new analytical framework of hydro-hegemony may be used to expose the hidden dynamics of water conflicts around the world and how, in particular, it yields critical insights into the Middle East water situation.   Combining extensive technical knowledge with personal experience in the field, the author offers important new findings that will interest researchers, professionals and policy makers involved with the politics of the Middle East and with water conflict more generally.

    I couldn't finish reading before I had to return to the library. This book is hard to find and not really worth finding from what I could tell. The lit review was really good and I had no idea there is so much work on water issues, but the analysis amounts to: Israelis control water resources = Palestinians lack access to water resources. Perhaps I didn't read far enough to get the complexities of the crisis... I hope so, otherwise what a waste of energy. I couldn't finish reading before I had to return to the library.

    The topic is very interesting but the perspective is biased from the very beginning, therefore it doesn't bring any contribution to scientific knowledge.
