The Author: Frank Marty studied international relations, history and business at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. Working for a major international bank, he has acquired additional experience in the field of economic research, with particular emphasis on emerging countries. This study is his second major publication, following a book on transboundary economic zones in Southeast Asia.
The book provides an excellent impression of the great variety of problems on international rivers, with rich and interesting insights into the emergence of co-operation among riparian states, the practice of International River Management and the determinants of success and failure. Drawing on theories of political economy and international relations it surely will be a key reference for the next years on politics of International River Management.
