The water dispute between the Israelis and Palestinians seldom grabs newspaper headlines like the issues of Jerusalem or Jewish settlements, but no permanent peace accord can be achieved between these two people without agreement over allocations of shared water resources. While historical, environmental, and economic dimensions of the issue are examined, the book demonstrates the essential political nature of the dispute and concludes that it can be solved only through political accommodation.
