Description - Silenced Rivers by Patrick McCully
Entirely updated in the light of the 2001 World Commission on Dams Report, and responding to it, this new edition of Patrick McCully's classic study shows why large dams have become such a controversial technological issue in both the industrialized and the developing countries. The book tells the story of the rapid growth of the international anti-dam movement and suggests alternative methods of supplying the services supposedly provided by such dams.
