Product description


"A highly original argument and extraordinary piece of scholarship that comes at a time when rain is behaving unpredictably and challenging humanity's attempt to contain it within banks. It offers an alternative way of thinking about our relationship with the hydrological cycle and of living with wetness."-Lindsay Bremner, University of Westminster "The Invention of Rivers is a radical and timely book that will stimulate considerable debate on matters of the greatest contemporary urgency."-Arjun Appadurai, New York University
