This book is a study of mass transit networks in urban areas and of their role in shaping the structure of the city. It establishes links between the history, planning and transport networks of eleven international cities (London, New York, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Madrid, Barcelona, Milan, Mexico City and Singapore), in a survey which helps us bring to mind the origins of modern means of transport: of conventional railways and their subsequent conversion into metros and tramways, and into today's high-speed trains; of the appearance in the metropolitan context of the motor car and bus, and the arrival of motorways and contemporary airports. In short, the history and morphology of transport networks in our big cities, described through the detailed study and comparative analysis of developments in each of them, all of this with a wealth of images, maps and data of interest.
