About the Author:

Robert Cartmell is professor in drawing and printmaking at the State University of New York at Albany. For America's Bicentennial in 1976 he initiated and organized an exhibit of the complete history of the roller coaster titled Coast to Coast Coasters. The exhibit, sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution, toured the United States for two years.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From dust jacket: In 1984 America celebrated the 100th anniversay of the first successful roller coaster device-La Marcus A. Thompson's switchback railway-erected at Coney Island. Robert Cartmell's study dissects the subject, examining every phase from the use of the roller coaster by Albert Einstein to demonstrate his theory of physics, to John Allen's use of psychology in designing one.
