Household water provides the entry point for this ethnography and
study of institutional change. The book discusses the political economy of
poverty and presents the polyphone discourse on water and the environment.
The author outlines water history and water rights from the 1970s onwards,
and analyzes social dynamics. She offers a critical voice in the debate on
climate change by arguing that local and global perceptions are not
necessarily coherent.
