Acerca de


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.


'Professor Collins' magisterial historical survey of the Nile debate from the beginning of this century should be essential background reading for all those concerned.' Paul Howell, Journal of African History, Volume 33, 1992 'he waters of the Nile describes with obvious relish the lands and plans, dams and personalities of a highly technical subject, and makes it accessible to the general reader.' M.W. Daly, SOAS Bulletin 'As an historical account which manages to maintain a sense of suspense and which is able to tell a story in a lucid and flowing way the book succeeds.' A. Trilsbach, African Affairs 'sound and well-written review of the history of the upper Nile ... The historical material is well researched ... The author has made his story extremely readable and it will also appeal to those who read non-fiction about the travellers. officials and engineers of the imperial past. The book is the best in the field ... an excellent book and a fine example of how historical material can be made relevant to contemporary affairs.' J.A. Allan, University of London, Africa 60/4
