Water History aims to foster historical understanding of the relationship between water and humankind. The journal spans disciplines to illuminate the complex processes that have shaped water resource use and reveal interrelated historical contingencies and precedents. As water has influenced the development of human communities throughout the world, the study of water contributes to understanding of economic, political, social, and environmental history, the history of science, medicine, technology, environmental sciences, and geography.In recognition of the complexity and sometimes contradictory aims and ideologies of those controlling water resources, Water History provides a forum for peer-reviewed research in the field of water history and management. The journal forges effective links between scholars engaged in water history research in the humanities and social sciences, as well in as the natural and applied sciences.
