Transportation and Society Series


At one time, the ability to travel was limited by the capacity of one's own two feet and the geographic barriers that divided one place from another. Ingenuity has led to increasingly sophisticated modes of transportation that have allowed humans to transcend physical and theoretical boundaries, via land, sea, and air. This comprehensive series chronicles the development of various vehicles, crafts, and travel-oriented infrastructures, examining their impact on societies across the globe.
