"The book is an ambitious attempt to summarise the topography, climate, surface hydrology and groundwater of the whole Arab Region. It assembles a lot of material which is readily available only in consultants' reports and similar sources. There are a number of statistical tables covering these topics."
"The book has involved an enormous amount of work, and would provide a useful introduction to those undertaking hydrological investigations in the Arab world."
John Sutcliffe, August 2005
