The A. attempts to reconstruct the urbanization process as a political and an ecological process. In Guayaquil, water becomes subject to an intense social struggle for control and access. The A. documents and analyzes the historical geography of water control in the context of the political ecology of the urbanization. The urbanization process is written from the perspective of the drive to domesticate nature's water and the necessity to push the ecological frontier outward as the city expands.
