Dr. Joyce Starr exposes the battles over Israeli and Middle East water policy that diluted the peace process.She illuminates the spiritual view of water set forth in sacred writings and how this legacy has shaped the current political terrain. The author outlines essential steps nations must take to prevent water shortages, pollution and famine in the all too near future.

Todays politicians chart a perilous course: Their policies couldbury the area under desert sand and concrete, shatter hopes for lastingpeace, and pose a threat far beyond the immediate reality.FURTHER REVIEWSA senior associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D. C., Starr has invested enormous scholarly and personal effort to convince the governments of Middle Eastern states that if they do not act in unison to forestall a regional water crisis, they may be dragged into more unnecessary wars. -Jay Bushinsky, Chicago Sun-TimesStarrs complete, humanistic presentation is beautifully written.  The Middle Eastern population suffers from a shortage of water.

The importance of controlling these resources is well conveyed by the author. She attacks the planners who intend to bury agricultural lands with cement. -Benny Begin, Member of the Knesset, IsraelDr. Joyce Starr has written a masterful work which touches at one and the same time both the shores of spirituality and the hardball Middle Eastern real politic. -Dan Gordon, screenwriter, Wyatt Earp, Murder in the First, Passenger 57Starrs book is not your usual work of nonfiction. It is not a textbook on the issue, though it contains data. It is not a tract, although there is an intense feel to the work.

Instead, it is a remarkably personal book by one of the leading water experts in the US. She begins her book with a discussion of water in the Bible. At first glance, the quotes from Genesis and Psalms seem totally irrelevant to the subject.But Starr is completely on the mark, aware that within months Israelis and Palestinians will be arguing over who had the water first. The question is whether anybody is listening.
