They need to understand not just engineering, but also management, economics, government policy and legislation. This text can be strongly recommended for the excellent coverage it provides on all these issues, drawing on worldwide experience.'Chris Nash, University of Leeds, UK'If you are interested in learning about the role of the railway in the transport system as well as the technical and financial aspects of its business, in Professor Profillidis' book you will find accurate, well-supported answers to your questions, including a clear explanation of thecontribution that this mode of transport could make to the conservation of the environment.'
