Reviews from previous edition:

"McCaffrey's book is comprehensive, scholarly and readable. I recommend it not only to scholars but also to practitioners in national water authorities and agencies, and in international consultancies, water companies, and law firms, who will find it an authoritative guide when putting theory into practice." - The Journal of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management, Vol. 16, No. 3, August 2002

"A very valuable source of knowledge relating to the contemporary law of international watercourses. It is very sound from the scholarly point of view, but at the same time, the author exhibits a realistic approach to the difficult problem of the management of shared freshwater sources. Well structured and very accessible in [its] presentation of issues." - International and Comparative Law Quarterly, Vol. 51, Part 1, January 2002

"Every international lawyer should have at least a passing familiarity with the subject. There is perhaps no better place to begin than with The Law of International Watercourses...[an] impressive study...thorough and comprehensive" - Joseph W. Dellapenna, The American Journal of International Law
