Blue Covenant: the Global Water Crisis and the Coming Battle for the Right to Water by Maude Barlow

"You will not turn on the tap in the same way after reading this book."
--Robert Redford

"Blue Covenant is the most important book that's ever been written on the global water crisis."
--Wenonah Hauter, executive director, Food & Water Watch

"Maude Barlow has for decades been a leading voice arguing that access to safe drinking water should be a basic human right. Called the "Al Gore of water," Barlow is the very best kind of advocate--deeply informed, articulate, and persuasive. Essential reading for anyone interested in the emerging international movement for water justice, Blue Covenant is one of the most important books of our time." --book cover
