A History of Water in nine volumes

books_history_of_waterPresentation of the complete series: waterhistory.b.uib.no

The pioneering History of Water series brings a much needed historical perspective to the relationship between water and society. The volumes in the series aim to show how history and development – from the birth of civilization to the present day – may be enriched, and new understandings and reinterpretations realised, by a proper awareness of the significance of water. Water issues can only be fully understood when all aspects – social, cultural, political religious and technological – are properly integrated.
