This stunning visual presentation, filled with photographs and illustrations depicting the world's greatest bridges, explains the manners in which laborers, engineers and architects have surmounted the problem of spanning the seemingly impassable from ancient times to the 21st century. A brilliantly written text explains in understandable terms the physics of different bridge types, while fascinating histories describe the "hows" and "whys" behind the world's most recognizable structures.
