This book is an attempt to link the technical dimension of water management with the geostrategic political dimension by analysing the Zionist vision of the importance of water to the Zionist project. It links the Zionist project to control over both land and water. The book contains nine chapters, on the following subjects: a historic overview of water management from the Ottoman era until the establishment of the Palestinian National Authority; the traditional and non-traditional sources of water in Palestine; the political, legal and institutional foundations of the Palestinian water sector; water in international law; Israeli policy and the process of negotiations; examples of regional projects and how they serve Israeli plans; the effects of building the apartheid wall; the annexation plan to control Palestinian water as a whole; a prognosis for the future, based on the past and the present.
