MEDIA REVIEWS
'It is of enormous help to those who campaign against giantism in water resource schemes in the developing world ... Worster writes vividly ... much of his material is carefully deconstructed documentation and if the quotations read as larger than life, so were the key actors ... it is for the reviewer (a scientist) to muse, after completing this magnificent and significant text, that the true value of Worster's critique is for all our futures, under scenarios of climate change and population growth.' Malcolm Newson, Ecumene 1994
...classic... * New Internationalist *
