From ancient civilizations to current day metropolitan cities, all societies have been shaped by the struggle to control water. The future of humankind will be shaped by the element of water and this struggle for control will establish the balance between peace and war, profoundly influencing relations between countries and continents. Climate change will also greatly affect water resources in the future. In the next decades huge water projects will radically change the face of the Earth.

Copies: 1

A science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam — anything floating that has been washed ashore. Bottles, lost toys, small objects of every description are among his usual finds.

But there's no way he could have prepared for one particular discovery: a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera, with its own secrets to share ... and to keep.

Dwarves want gold. You know that, I know that, everyone knows that. But since their legs are short, walking from location to location to collect gold takes a long time – which is why they don't walk on their own, but instead use a giant for transportation.
