The Reference Guide to Famous Engineering Landmarks of the World: Bridges, Tunnels, Dams, Roads, and Other Structures
Book is the first to cover hundreds of achievements in civil engineering that literally altered the course of history, such as the Alaska Highway, the English "Chunnel", and the Catacombs. Serving as a vital first step in research while providing fascinating browsing material, each entry describes the landmark's physical dimensions, who built it and why, as well as when it was built. Photographs and line drawings are included, as well as a glossary of important terms, bibliography, chronology, and a list of relevant organizations.
