A History of Water

Т. 2: Rivers and Society: From Early Civilizations to Modern Times . Palgrave Macmillan, 2010.
Editor-in-chief: T. Tvedt

"Rivers and Society" explores the ways in which human/river relations have shaped important historical transformation processes. With examples ranging from explorations of classical agrarian civilizations such as the Indus, Angkor and Maya, to analyses of the role of water in the modernization process of countries such as Spain, Britain and Japan, the international contributors shed new light on the ways in which the key relationship between humans and water has given rise to new forms of social organization, new technologies and economic activities
