Columbia River Interstate Compact, Politics of Negotiation, H.R. Doerksen. State of Washington Water Research Center Report No. 11, Washington State University, Pullman, 1972. 196 pp.

H.R. Doerksen's review of Columbia River negotiations is exceedingly well organized and well written; it describes clearly many of the principal problems of interstate river compact negotiations. Doerksen has obviously gained considerable insight into the complexities of negotiating water resources agreements among the several states involved with the Columbia River and its tributaries.
