Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Robert Glennon is the Morris K. Udall Professor of Law and Public Policy in the Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona. He is the author of many articles and books, including the acclaimed Water Follies: Groundwater Pumpingand the Fate of America’s Fresh Waters.

Review

"Author Robert Glennon connects the dots between our water woes and climate change, energy, growth, the environment, and agriculture. He makes a compelling case that we need to re-think how we use this prized resource and provides a number of thought-provoking solutions. Informative, insightful, and very interesting."
-- U.S. Senator Mark Udall, Colorado

"Robert Glennon makes immediate and specific the most urgent point of crisis threatening the health and welfare of the American environment. The wells of the American dream stand a good chance of running dry, and to read Glennon's necessary book is to know that without water there will be no wine, no roses, nothing over Dorothy's rainbow except a pillar of salt."
-- Lewis Lapham, editor, "Lapham's Quarterly"

"Robert Glennon is a leading-edge legal scholar and passionate water advocate whose thinking is central to an intense debate on the path forward to a water-secure world. I heartily recommend his provocative, information-packed, and highly readable new book Unquenchable."
-- Maude Barlow

"Unquenchable is a worthy successor to Cadillac Desert that ably demonstrates how our most valuable resource is being squandered, ignored, and flushed away. Although it reminds us that water is indeed finite, Unquenchable clearly shows us the solutions to the greatest threat of the 21st century are limited only by politics and greed."
-- Terry Tamminen, Cullman Senior Fellow, New America Foundation and former secretary, CA EPA

"Glennon brings home the global problem of availability of drinking water...interesting and timely...recommended."
, CHOICE

"Glennon illustrates the depth and complexity of our country's water problems."
, Audubon

"Top Ten Environmental Book of 2009"
, Mother Nature Network

"If you use water, you need to read this book. It's akin to Cadillac Desert"
, Water Wired

"Several books have been published recently addressing the global water crisis, but none has offered such in-depth analysis."
, New York Review of Ideas

"Thought-provoking and insightful book that offers and informed and articulate review of the enormous water issues facing Arizona, and the United States as a whole. It should be on the bookshelves of attorneys, environmentalists, public policy managers, and others interested in natural resources."
, Journal of Arizona History
