Deep Water The Epic Struggle over Dams, Displaced People, And the Environment (Paperback)
|Author: Jacques Leslie|
|Taking the reader to the sites of controversial dams, Leslie shows why dams are at once the hope of developing nations and a blight on their people and landscape.|
From the Publisher:
Beginning with the premise that the great dam-building projects of the twentieth century are like modern-day pyramids in their social scope and economic impact, the author explores the looming crises over water and energy that have precipitated these massive public projects, as well as the mass displacements they provoke.
