Summary:
"With almost the entire world's water basins crossing political borders of some kind, understanding how to cooperate with one's neighbor is of global relevance. With this aim, this book explores the nuances of transboundary water governance through the exploration of the "friendly" Canada-US border. The border is colloquially known as the "longest undefended border in the world", but in reality it is a border under increased scrutiny and security measures"-- Provided by publisher.
