The completely revised and updated edition of the definitive book on one of the most important and controversial topics of our time: drinking water
When we turn on the tap or twist open a tall plastic bottle, we probably don t give a second thought about where our drinking water comes from. But how it gets from the ground to the glass is far more convoluted than we might think.
In this revised edition ofDrinking Water, UCLA professor and environmental policy expert James Salzman shows how drinking water highlights the most pressing issues of our time. He adds eye-opening, contemporary examples about our relationship to and consumption of water, and a new chapter about the tragedies that occurred in Flint, Michigan. Provocative, insightful, and engaging, Drinking Watershows just how complex a simple glass of water can be.
