If there ever was a book that this reviewer was biased in favour of, it's this one. Not least because the long list of contributors includes many of his current and former associates at the City of Cape Town, Divisional Council of the Cape, Ninham Shand Consulting Engineers, and the water, environmental and historical activist community of Cape Town. Prominent among these contributors is Tony Murray, whose unpublished research tour de force, "Much water under many bridges : the history of the catchments, rivers, and drainage systems of Greater Cape Town", underpins a sizeable chunk of this lengthy (400 page) book.
