The Conquest of Water: The Advent of Health in the Industrial Age. Introduction by Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie by Jean-Pierre Goubert

A study of the social and cultural conquest of water during the 19th and 20th centuries. Goubert (Centre de Recherches Historiques, Ecole des Haute Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris) discloses the changing meanings of everyday reality as he explores the transition from water- scarce cultures, in which water was a sacred symbol, to the secularization and then the mass democratization of the water supply.
