*Blue Covenant: The Global Water Crisis and the Coming Battle for the Right
to Water by Maude Barlow

Scientists call them "hot stains" - the parts of the earth running out of
clean, drinkable water. They now include northern China, large areas of Asia
and Africa, the Middle East, Australia, the Midwestern United States, and
sections of South America and Mexico. How did the world's most vital natural
resource become so imperiled? And what must we do to pull back from the
brink?

In the tradition of such classics as Rachel Carson's Silent Spring and Al
Gore's Inconvenient Truth, Blue Covenant addresses an environmental crisis
that - together with global warming - poses one of the gravest threats to
our survival. 

World-renowned activist and author Maude Barlow has been at the forefront of
international water politics, and in this timely and important book she
discusses the state of the world's water, how water companies are reaping
vast profits from declining supplies, and how ordinary people from around
the world have banded together to reclaim the public's right to clean water.

Cheers, Michelle.
