Social power and the Urbanization of Water takes the circulation of water as a lense through which to analyse how the natural and social fuse together in the process of urbanization. In addition, excavating the circulation of water provides a vehicle to examine the relations between social, political, and economic power which give structure to the urbanization process. These power relations become embodied in and expressed by the particular forms through which water becomes urban. This analysis, in turn, allows light to be cast on who controls the transformation and appropriation of nature and the citiy's environment. The city of Quayaquil in Ecuador, where 600,000 people lack easy access to potable water, provides the empirical background for this analysis. Historical political-ecological research is combined with an analysis of key contemporary power brokers who organize a highly uneven and deeply unjust urban water circulation system. --COVER.

This book provides a detailed microeconomic analysis of the impact of various privatizations in different countries in the region. Its central message is that in many cases, contrary to popular belief, society as a whole and in particular the poor have benefited from privatization. The book presents a careful analysis of the various mechanisms through which privatization has an impact on welfare, an analysis that by and large has been missing from the debate. Case studies of water sector privatization in Argentina and Colombia, and also the telecom industry in Peru are included.
