Deep Water: The Epic Struggle Over Dams Jacques Leslie talked about his book Deep Water: The Epic Struggle Over Dams, Displaced People, and the Environment, published by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux. In the 1990s, the World Commission on Dams was formed to examine the effects of large dams on their surrounding environments. Three of these commission members are the subject of Jacques Leslie’s book. He told the stories of commission members in Australia, Africa, and India, where large dams displaced hundreds of thousands of people while generating massive amounts of energy at the same time. He also talked about the political and social effects of dams, including globalization, environmental deterioration, and the risks associated with tampering with nature on a large scale. After his presentation he answered audience members' questions. close
