This book examines the water issue in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and peace process. While the water dispute between Israelis and Palestinians seldom grabs newspaper headlines like the issues of Jerusalem or Jewish settlements, no permanent peace accord can be achieved between these two peoples 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.
