Boldly introduced in 1981, the Chilean model is the world's leading example of a free market approach to water law, water rights, and water resource management. Despite more than a decade of international debate, however, a comprehensive, balanced account of the Chilean experience has been unavailable. Siren Song is an interdisciplinary analysis combining law, political economy, and geography. Also published in Spanish in 2004 as Canto de Sirenas: El Derecho de Aguas Chileno como Modelo para Reformas Internacionales ( Bilbao, Spain: Bakeaz).
