Ralf Roth, Marie-NoŽlle Polino
Ashgate, 2003 - History - 287 pages
The advent and development of railways during the nineteenth century not only contributed to industrialisation and urbanisation, but transformed relations of space and time, altering long held perceptions and experiences of distance and geography. The City and the Railway in Europe is concerned with the ways that railways have affected the development of the modern European city. It explores cultural and social history, reflecting struggles for hegemony, identity, gender roles and perceptions that the railways brought into urban life.
