Water usage doubles every twenty years, yet more than thirty countries face water stress and scarcity, and over a billion people lack adequate access to clean drinking water.At a time when Canadian corporations and politicians are planning the export of our precious resource, this new book by "the world's most prominent radical scientist" ( The Guardian ) will provide Canadians with a thorough introduction to the key issues.Shiva warns that water privatization threatens cultures and livelihoods worldwide. She calls for a movement to preserve water access for all, and offers a blueprint for global resistance.
