Here you can read a text of Madelaine Moore about her book.

Blue Community cofounder Maude Barlow states on this book: «The planet's water is in peril, seen as a resource for the global economy at the service of transnational capital. In her powerful new book, Madelaine Moore shows us that water does not exist outside the politics and culture that shapes our core values. To protect water and the human right to water requires a profound commitment to social change and true democracy from the ground up. »
