From the reviews:

"This book is one of the few so far dealing with the very `hot' topic of water resources in one of the most densely populated drought-prone areas of the world - already a source of tension and political conflict. ... the technical quality of the book is fine and authors and editors have been attentive to the layout of graphics and tables, making these easy to read. ... It is to the merit of the editors to have provided the community with this overview ... ." (Environmental Geology, Vol. 46 (8), 2004)

"The Middle East has water problems caused by the scarcity of water coupled with the high growth rates of population. ... This book presents a comprehensive overview of the current situation in the Middle East and North Africa. The water problem is described and discussed in four main chapters and different case studies, contributed by 39 scientists. ... the book addresses experts as well as the interested public." (Tom Van Nieuwerburgh, International Journal of Environment and Pollution, Vol. 28 (1-2), 2006)
