As flooding, drought and water scarcity take prominence through climate change, so media representations of these events assume greater significance. Joanne Garde-Hansen's book offers a comprehensive exploration of such media representations of water. Drawing on a wide range of media - including newspapers, digital, photography, radio and television, as well as empirical research on media and memory, she examines how drought, flooding and water management have been portrayed in the media, both historically and in the contemporary world. She explores media and cultural perceptions of water, the use of the media by water institutions to manage public perceptions, and the use of digital media by the public to engage with water companies. A particular feature of the book is an examination of water and gender in developed nations. One of the first books to look at media representations of water.
