Editorial Reviews

?[The] classic passenger trains are gone, and this book is the first to analyze their demise in clear and penetrating detail. ... Itzkoff assigns blame to many sources and seems to imply that if certain trends had been reversed, the classic intercity passenger train could have survived. ... Basically a fully documented economic history, the book skillfully eschews the jargon of the specialist and the nostalgia of the rail buff. Although short, it gives comprehensive coverage, including an impressive list of sources. ... Public and academic libraries at all levels.?-Choice
