Landmark Covenant Over Middle East Waters Now: Israel Water Wars
This book exposes the battles over Israeli and Middle East water policy that eventually diluted the peace process. It also illuminates the spiritual view of water set forth in sacred writings and how this legacy has shaped the current political terrain.
“Dr. Joyce Starr’s many years of experience shaping water policies in the Middle East have yielded a work that is a must for anyone with a serious interest in the region’s future.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Superbly researched, beautifully written and prophetically alarming.” – Martin Sieff, Washington Times
The very waters of life, according to Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions, are said to flow from the Holy Land of the ancient Middle East region. Yet, today’s politicians chart a perilous course. Their policies could bury the area under concrete, shatter hopes for lasting peace, and pose a threat far beyond the immediate reality.
I published this book in the mid-1990s under the title: Covenant Over Middle Eastern Waters: Key to World Survival (Henry Holt) Few copies of the original book remain. Therefore, I am offering a limited paperback edition and EBook PDF under the title Israel Water Wars – exclusively for my site visitors.
A key conclusion: that senior State Department officials, enamored with Syria but fearful of Turkey, squandered a chance for Middle East water peace in the early 1990s. We did know then what we should know now.
