Product description

From the Publisher

Stephen Halliday has once again written a book which combines original research with sharp insights and humour. In the words of Richard Morrison, in "The Times", (10th November 2001) "Halliday's detailed history, full of wit, anecdotes and fascinating social asides, is a superbly even-handed portrait of the transport of delight that has turned into the nightmare beneath our feet". -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Hardcover.

From the Author

I formed the idea for this book while researching and writing "The Great Stink of London" (1999) an account of the work of the great Victorian engineer Sir Joseph Bazalgette who built more of London than anyone else - famous streets, bridges, parks and, above all, the sewers which keep the capital free of disease. I learned that much of the Undergound Railway was built at the same time, to solve London's appalling traffic congestion. I was also struck by similarities between the problems faced by the Victorians and those faced by Ken Livingstone: traffic, pollution and, above all, problems with money. It has never been easy to raise money to build or maintain the London Underground and the chicanery used to build much of the system makes Ken Livingstone's difficulties mild by comparison. I have tried to write a book which will be of interest to the underground traveller as well as to those who have a strong interest in railways for their own sake. The larger than! ! life characters, some of them swindlers, who struggled to build the system we struggle to maintain, deserve to be better known. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Hardcover.
