This book offers a new explanation for the spatial-political-environmental dynamics of water and irrigation in the long-term histories of two arid regions, Southwest Arabia (3500 BC-AD 600) and the American West (2000 BC-AD 1950).
1. Introduction: comparing water histories of America and Arabia; 2. Comparison and juxtaposition in archaeology: water, agriculture and state formation in space and time; 3. Water histories of ancient Yemen in global comparative perspective; 4. Pastoralism, water and the beginning of agriculture in Southwest Arabia; 5. Water histories of Southwest Arabian kingdoms (and the American West); 6. Conclusion: water histories, comparison, geopolitics and spatial archaeology.
