The waters of the Nile are fundamental to life in Egypt. In this compelling ethnography, Jessica Barnes explores the everyday politics of water: a politics anchored in the mundane yet vital acts of blocking, releasing, channeling, and diverting water. She examines the quotidian practices of farmers, government engineers, and international donors as they interact with the waters of the Nile flowing into and through Egypt. Situating these local practices in relation to broader processes that affect Nile waters, Barnes moves back and forth from farmer to government ministry, from irrigation canal to international water conference. By showing how the waters of the Nile are constantly made and remade as a resource by people in and outside Egypt, she demonstrates the range of political dynamics, social relations, and technological interventions that must be incorporated into understandings of water and its management.

Jessica Barnes is the mom of an awesome 5 year old boy named Jacob who LOVES Minecraft! She wrote this book because he wanted a Minecraft book and she couldn't find any books out there about Minecraft for kids his age. He likes books with pictures and a few lines of text; any more than that and he becomes restless and loses interest. Jessica is happily married to her amazing husband, Jeff. He is (thankfully) supportive of all of her harebrained schemes and ideas! (This one included!) By day, Jessica teaches middle school students science and careers. She holds a Bachelor in Education and a Master Degree of Guidance and Counseling. In addition to teaching middle school, Jessica has also taught college courses for students going into the field of Education. It is her educator/counselor background combined with her experience as a mom that gives Jessica's writing a unique mix! She desires to create children's books that foster a love for reading while at the same time encouraging positive behaviors for interacting and playing with friends. When Jessica is not teaching or hanging out with her family and friends she enjoys: reading, scrap booking, running (or maybe it's more like jogging), being outside, going to yard sales, and finding creative ways to bless the people she loves!
