Water is increasingly playing an important role in Africa. It is a crucial natural resource that will determine the continental response to the challenges of development and growth confronting Africa in the new millennium.

 

In this study specialists in the fields of engineering, management, anthropology, history, military sciences, development and environmental studies, political science, and legal studies, take a closer look at the historical dimensions of water in Africa.

 

The focus is on water beyond the confines of traditional academic disciplines. By taking a trans disciplinary stance they share thoughtful perspectives on aspects of development in sub-Saharan Africa.

 

African water histories provides insights into past and current problems of dealing with Africa’s colonial past and the manner in which challenges should be contemplated in the future.

 

The book would be of value to readers interested in public management and governance, urban planning, geography, history, legal studies, engineering, politics, anthropology, water resource management and environmental studies.
