Water resources management: in search of an environmental ethic

Front Cover
Johns Hopkins University Press, 1991 - Technology & Engineering - 247 pages
"In one slim volume, Feldman has managed to combine a history of U.S. water policy, two in-depth case studies on the politics of water, an analysis of the institutional biases affecting U.S. water policy, and a discussion of water policy in France. Nor is that all. The opening and closing chapters of the work set this panoramic view of water policy within a normative framework derived from theorists as disparate as John Muir and John Rawls."-- Journal of Politics
