Abstract/Summary

This chapter outlines the aims and content of this volume, delving into the complex and often hidden connection between water, technological advancement and the nation-state. The chapter initially delineates the main theoretical and conceptual approaches underpinning our understanding of how water resources are enmeshed with multiscalar processes related to technology and the nation-state. It then provides an overview of the contributions to this volume, outlining how all of the case studies unfold through choreographies of oppression and domination, while also, and inevitably, bringing to the fore the opportunity to enact strategies of resistance and contestation aimed at sharing water resources more equally.
