Congratulations to Dr. Jessie Barnes on the appearance of her new book, "Cultivating the Nile: The everyday politics of water in Egypt".  The political complexities are fascinating, and the long history of water use from the Nile will make policy solutions to water shortages vastly different from those employed in the US.
