THE GREAT RAILWAY REVOLUTION: New book by CTR Honorary Fellow Christian Wolmar
CTR Honorary Fellow Christian Wolmar, renowned journalist and author, has published a new book.
THE GREAT RAILWAY REVOLUTION: The Epic Story of the American Railroad is published by Atlantic Books. Details and reviews can be found at www.christianwolmar.co.uk
Christian Wolmar tells us the extraordinary one-hundred-and-eighty-year story of the rise, fall and ultimate shattering of the greatest of all American endeavours, of technological triumph and human tragedy, of visionary pioneers and venal and rapacious railway barons. He also argues that while America has largely disowned this heritage, now is the time to celebrate, reclaim and reinstate it.
