Scudder charts the 'middle way' forward by examining all aspects of the costs, benefits and risks to ecosystems, societies and economies of large dam development projects. He also assesses state-of-the-art procedures for addressing environmental, institutional, political and social issues, and tackles the highly contentious issue of dam-induced resettlement, illuminated by a statistical analysis of 50 cases.
