About the Author

Albert Schram is a Researcher at the School of Business and Economics, Maastricht University.


"This very succinct and persuasive account of railway development in the second half of the 19th century validates an older view that the economic impact of the railroads was substantially less than had been predicted." Choice "This welcome addition to the growing English-language literature on nineteenth-century Italy brings together a great deal of material on the interrelations of the State, the railways, and the economy." Stefano Fenoaltea, Jrnl of Eco Hist "...this volume is an excellent survey about the transport history of the nineteenth century." Stefano Maggi, American Historical Review
