Resource governance at its best. Sowman, Wynberg and colleagues have produced a book with strong theory and fascinating case studies that provide a broad vista across the sub-Saharan African landscape and waterscape.

This book is at the cutting edge of the quest for sustainable development solutions that acknowledge the central place of social justice in the political and governance domains. This is a book that should be read and used by development practitioners and scholars, with valuable insights from Africa for the world.
