However, competing and changing demands on its use are leading to ever more complex political arrangements. This volume offers an integrated survey of that complexity, combining historical and contemporary cases in a conceptually-informed exploration of water politics.

Quick Facts: The Amazon River in South America is the largest river by discharge volume of water in the world, and by some definitions it is the longest. The portion of the river's drainage basin in Brazil alone is larger than any other river's basin. The Amazon enters Brazil with only one-fifth of the flow it finally discharges into the Atlantic Ocean, yet already.The Mackenzie River Basin is the largest in Canada covering million square kilometres over three provinces, and two territories, while the Liard River Basin is the 9th largest watershed in Canada and the river is the 11th longest in the country.
