Reviews

@qu:...a very useful book for planners of water resources projects in Third World countries. The value of the book is that it could serve as an intermediary between those who view a project from its economic merits and those who are responsible for the technical aspects. Therefore, it makes excellent reading material for students preparing for a career in the field. @source:Journal of Hydrology
