Water Law in Historical Perspective is a tour de force. Professor Teclaff has given us the advantage of his lifelong experience and learning in water law. Every page is enriched by his mature insight and scholarship. The book is divided into two parts. The first consist of a far ranging discussion of national legal systems, while the second is devoted to the development of international law both as to surface waters and groundwaters. This striking book is one that anyone interested in water resources will want to have as an all purpose reference with a global perspective and a historical insight.
