Delta: The Perils, Profits And Politics Of Water In South And Southeast Asia
by Schwartz, Daniel
About This Book
Water is an agent of social, economic and political discord - abundantly so in the great deltas of South and Southeast Asia, the focus of this troubling but pertinent study. Daniel Schwartz has been at the forefront of photo reportage for over twenty years and these poignant images show the reality of life – and death – in an impoverished but immensely resourceful part of the world. Supporting the images are documents, drawn from a wide range of authoritative sources, throwing light on a region of enormous untapped potential.
Shaking off a long history of isolation, obscurity and conflict, this is an area whose time has finally come. Statements of reality, direct and unadorned, these photographs are a declaration of hope for the deltas.
