A person first encountering this book is likely to wonder why it brings together two distinct regions into one publication on water management. What bearing can the strategies and policies pursued in the Colorado River Basin in the United States and Mexico have on water management for Israelis and Palestinians, and vice versa? The authors of the articles collected in this volume demonstrate that this is a rich field of inquiry and an opportunity for mutual learning. The regions share many physical and societal characteristics that motivate exchanges of information and approaches.
