Contested waters, sub-national scale water and conflict in Pakistan, Daanish Mustafa

"Contested Waters provides an in-depth analysis of trans-boundary water conflict involving the Indus Basin in Pakistan. The book focuses on both national scale and local scale case studies to illustrate how these water conflicts are both discursively and materially driven by human institutions and politics. Through case studies of controversy over large dams, local flooding and irrigation methods, Daanish Mustafa highlights the various deeply political and institutional factors driving water conflict ? specifically the disparity between national scale strategies of water politics and local scale water politics ? and calls for engagement with water conflict in political terms."--, Provided by publisher
