The INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF HYDRAULIC ENGINEERING AND RESEARCH has recently published a new book in the IAHR MONOGRAPH SERIES entitled:
Water Engineering in Ancient Civilizations 5,000 Years of History
by PierreLouis Viollet

The book provides a fascinating and invaluable insight to understanding the fundamental role of water engineering in the development of civilizations. It abounds with descriptions of hydraulic techniques in the civilizations of the classical era and the Middle Ages, including illustrations and translated descriptions of ancient observers and authors. The work is unique in offering an engineer´s perspective not only on the history of water technology, but also by demonstrating the genesis of ideas and the transmission of ideas and technology from one age and civilizationto the next. The book is specially noteworthy for its efforts to situate hydraulic developments in their historical and intellectual context
