about

Although the years between the world wars were ones of diplomatic tension in Europe, they also saw the construction of countless miles of international railroads on the continent. In Constructing Iron Europe, Irene Anastasiadou examines this era of railroad building and argues that, contrary to most conventional histories-which view railroad building as an aspect of nation- or empire-building-the construction in this era was deliberately transnational, and ultimately aimed at tightening links between nations and constructing a closer-knit European community.
Irene Anastasiadou is a visiting researcher in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Innovation Sciences at the Eidnhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands.
