The Waters of the Nile Hydropolitics and the Jonglei Canal, 1900-88 by Robert O. Collins

A history of the science of hydrology as applied to the Nile, whose annual flows can produce acute drought or disastrous floods. The author makes it clear that the decisive forces in his complex story are political ones, in a context of internal and international rivalries and brutal civil wars.
