Promotional Information

A delightful exposition of the multiplicity of a mundane object. The authors demonstrate bottled water in all its variation, as an entity which enacts diverse global, political, commercial, environmental, and ethical contexts. Drinking water can never be the same again! -- Steve Woolgar, Professor of Science and Technology Studies, Linkoping University and Oxford University; coauthor of Mundane Governance: Ontology and Accountability By showing how various packaging innovations manage to reorient new flows of water and issues, Plastic Water deeply renews our understanding of markets and politics: the authors' fascinating study of the worldwide dynamics of bottled water brilliantly evidences that some of the most serious concerns rest less on classic institutional and ideological games than on the mundane material life where they take their source. As such, this book is one of the most welcome contributions to contemporary economic sociology. -- Franck Cochoy, Professor of Sociology, University Toulouse Jean-Jaures/CERTOP, France
