The Railway Haters: Opposition to Railways from the 19th to 21st Centuries (PS)

Back Order

This book examines opposition to railways since the 19th century. In the early years of railway building, wealthy landowners found themselves being forced to sell land to enable railway construction, leading to clashes of interest between landowners and railway pioneers. These clashes continue to the present day, with the construction of new high speed lines. Also looks at several other examples of opposition to railways from social, economic and political perspectives over the last 200 years. Hardback. 416 pages.
