About this product
- DescriptionWe all use some form of transport almost every day of our lives. It is one of the most important factors in determining the ecomic wellbeing of a town or city. And it is also one of the major sources of environmental damage to our planet. Yet, Britain has never had a coherent transport policy. Transport ministers are regarded as insignificant compared with their colleagues in other ministries. Successive governments have failed to get to grips with the twin challenge of getting people around cheaply and safely while safeguarding the environment. In this entertaining polemic, Christian Wolmar, a former national newspaper journalist who has written about transport for over two decades, explains why politicians have never got to grips with the issue, sets out the problems this has caused and points to a few rational solutions.
- Author BiographyChristian Wolmar is an award winning writer and broadcaster specialising in transport and is the author of a series of books on railway history.
