Few man-made structures can combine technical skill with aesthetic beauty in such an imaginative way as the bridge. From ancient times to the present day, bridges have been a focus for man's creativity and enterprise. This enthusiastic account of bridges describes their history, how they are constructed as well as taking a look at the great bridges around the world. Innovative bridge projects planned for the future are examined, along with the ultimate purpose of the bridge - function or art form?

From the Publisher:

Few man-made structures can combine the technical skill with aesthetic beauty in such an imaginative way as the bridge. From three thousand years ago when a log would span a 10-foot stream for a horse and rider to modern suspension bridges over 2 miles longs, these structures have changed beyond recognition as new materials, stronger construction methods, and greater engineering knowledge has been gained. The Creation of Bridges describes the wonders of bridge building, the record breakers, great bridges of the past, the failures and catastrophic disasters.

About the Author:

David Bennett is a Fitzhenry and Whiteside author.
