            A revelatory history--spanning continents and millennia--of how the distribution of water has shaped human civilization, by the chief strategy officer and global ambassador of water at The Nature Conservancy. In this richly narrated and authoritative work--combining environmental... and societal history--Giulio Boccaletti begins with the earliest civilizations of sedentary farmers on the banks of the Nile, the Tigris, and the Euphrates. He describes how these societies were made possible by sea level changes from the last glacial melt. He examines how this sedentary farming led to irrigation and multiple cropping, which, in turn, resulted in an explosion in population and the specialization of labor. We see how irrigation structure led to social structure--inventions like the calendar sprung from agricultural necessity; how, in Ancient Greece, communal ownership of wells laid the groundwork for democracy; how the Greek and Roman experience dealing with water security was the seed for tax systems. And he makes clear how the modern world as we know it began with a legal structure for the development of water infrastructure. In its scope and clarity, Water: A Biography provides a fascinating framework through which we can more fully understand society's relationship to, and fundamental reliance on, the most elemental substance on our planet.

            Anyone striving to understand and improve this country should read her story. --Gloria Steinem, author of My Life on the Road The Emmy Award-winning journalist and anchor of NPR's Latino USA tells the story of immigration in America through her family's experiences and decades of... reporting, painting an unflinching portrait of a country in crisis in this memoir that is quite simply beautiful, written in Maria Hinojosa's honest, passionate voice (BookPage). Maria Hinojosa is an award-winning journalist who, for nearly thirty years, has reported on stories and communities in America that often go ignored by the mainstream media--from tales of hope in the South Bronx to the unseen victims of the War on Terror and the first detention camps in the US. Bestselling author Julia Alvarez has called her one of the most important, respected, and beloved cultural leaders in the Latinx community. In Once I Was You, Maria shares her intimate experience growing up Mexican American on the South Side of Chicago. She offers a personal and illuminating account of how the rhetoric around immigration has not only long informed American attitudes toward outsiders, but also sanctioned willful negligence and profiteering at the expense of our country's most vulnerable populations--charging us with the broken system we have today. An urgent call to fellow Americans to open their eyes to the immigration crisis and understand that it affects us all, this honest and heartrending memoir paints a vivid portrait of how we got here and what it means to be a survivor, a feminist, a citizen, and a journalist who owns her voice while striving for the truth. Also available in Spanish as Una vez fui tu.

A well-researched and dynamic firsthand account, it captures the drama of the events-from the overheated markets of 2...007 through the collapse of investment banks and crises in multiple economies to the fragile recovery in New Zealand and the world in 2010-as politicians, bankers, and government officials struggled to deal with the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. This updated edition also reveals how New Zealand grappled with the impact of debt crises in the United States and Europe as well as with the devastating effects of the Christchurch earthquakes.
