Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The book demonstrates, in a clear and concise fashion, the ways in which contemporary social relationships with water have constituted a crisis . The subject is of fundamental importance and the author's emphasis on the need to posit environmental concerns within a socio-natural understanding is vital.- Alex Loftus, Department of Geography, University of LondonBeginning a book as Jamie Linton does this one, with the claim that "water is what we make of it," is an act of provocation . Just as a stone thrown into a lake spreads ripples outward across its surface, so Linton's provocation sends intellectual shock waves hammering into pervasive ways of understanding and defining water, invites reflection on the ways in which people have thought about water in the past, and heightens awareness of the consequences that will flow from what we make of water in the future.- from the Foreword by Graeme WynnThe publication of Jamie Linton's superb monograph, What is Water? , provides an opportunity to consider the development of relational and dialectical thought within geography and especially how this has developed around the subject of water.- Alex Loftus, Department of Geography, Royal Holloway, University of London, The Geographical Journal.
