    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95

    There is no question that water pricing and public-private partnership can improve water management practices in the future.

    Over the last three decades there has been a rapid expansion of intensive production of fresh fruit and vegetables in the Mediterranean regions of south and west Europe.

    This book outlines how, from the mid-eighteenth to the early nineteenth century, the political and social dimension of French economic thought, and particularly of Physiocracy, spurred American Republicans to a radical shaping of American agrarian ideology.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 84.95

    Water is a basic human need, and despite predictions of "water wars," shared waters have proven to be the natural resource with the greatest potential for interstate cooperation and local confidence building. Indeed, water management plays a singularly important role in rebuilding trust after conflict and in preventing a return to conflict. Featuring... more...
