Strohl examines the evolving network of high speed railway passenger trains in Western Europe. The purpose of the study, in addition to placing high speed train networks in a geographic and economic context, is to introduce the American reader to the evolving system of passenger trains in Europe toward evaluating their feasibility for high-density areas of the U.S. and Canada. Beginning with some general concepts of railway economics, planning, construction, and operation, the author goes on to detail high speed rail networks in France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, and Spain, with additional information on Japan and Scandinavia. This unique work will be of interest to all scholars and professionals in transportation economics and railway systems.

.,."Strohl has produced an excellent up-to-date book on the status of the world's high-speed passanger rail lines and plans. This is not a "train buff" or "rail fan" book, but rather an impressive scholarly exposition by and American political science professor, longtime resident in Paris, who provides considerable technical detail in terms understandable to the general reader. The book is very comprehensive in its coverage. There is no comparable book. The footnotes, bibliography, and index are excellent.
