Book Description Hutchinson University Library, London England, 1974. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. 3rd Revised Edition. Paperback. An Economic History of Transport in Britain. Slight browning to edges of pages through age. Tiny tear to top edge of a couple of pages. Wear to top edge of spine. This is, in effect, a new book rather than a revised edition of the late Professor Savage's earlier work, and, as an economic historian, Professor Barker's much-amended edition reflects the great awakening of interest in transport historu, particular in the era before 1914. The first five chapters, which are almost entirely new, throw greater emphasis on the canal and railway ages and reflect growing awareness of the important use of road transport and coastal shipping in what used to be regarded primarily as the railway age. Similarly, the final chapter on British transport since the second world war has been updated as mush as published statistics allow. But Professor Savage's original and valuable interpretation of the rise of road competition between the wars, and how the State reacted to this, has been completely retained. Transport has never been more widely available and its problems have never been so acute: this book draws together the expertise of two acknowledged authorities to present a comprehensive view of a subject that plays a fundamental role in our everyday lives. 280 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books ,and all types of Academic Literature.)
