River of Life, River of Death: The Ganges and the future of water politics in India and Asia

India is killing the Ganges, and the Ganges in turn is killing India. India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made saving his country's most sacred but deeply polluted waterway a national priority. His progress has been limited. Journalist Victor Mallet's award-winning book traces the holy river from source to mouth, and from ancient times to the present day, to understand if the battle to save arguably the world's most important river is already lost — and what India's struggle can tell us about the politics and geopolitics of water conflicts all accross Asia.
