Parched City, Paperback Book


Safe drinking water is essential to daily life. Meeting that demand with bottled water is a luxury too far, argues Emma Jones.

She is not a lone critic of the packaged water industry.

However, this author looks to history for solutions to a major sustainability problem: in the design, management and use of the city.

With original stories from London's archives, Parched City tracks drinking-water obsessions through a popular architectural history tale.
