Description:

Drawing on decades of experience in the region, Seifulaziz Milas brings us this revealing look at the politics of the Nile River, and the long-standing dispute between Egypt and the upstream countries over control of the great river's waters. He challenges the myth that any attempt by the those countries to use this resource in their own interests, without Egypt’s permission, would inevitably lead to war. He argues that Egypt's rhetoric is largely intended to dissuade donors and International Financial Institutions (IFIs) from lending to the upper Nile Basin states for the development of their water resources. *BR**BR*The book examines Cairo’s interest in Ethiopia’s Blue Nile, the main source of Egypt’s water supply. It recounts the history of the dispute, and describes the impact of successive Egyptian regimes' policy toward Ethiopia. Finally, Milas suggests a way forward, towards cooperative peace and development. *BR*
