Description: R.G. (Bob) Harvey tells the stories of the road through the Okanagan Valley, the highway alongside Kootenay Lake and the Crows Nest Railway.

Description: In a province where mountain ranges are at odds with road and rail builders, and its capital city and a large portion of its population are on an island, it's no surprise that provision of an effective transportation system has been a challenging undertaking—or that mistakes have been made.

Author(s): Lionel Casson
Book Pages: 470 - Publish Date: 1995-12-01 - Publisher: JHU Press
Description: Lionel Casson's encyclopedic study is the first of its kind to use underwater archaeological data to refine and area of scholarship that had, for the most part, relied on ancient texts and graphic representations. Tracing the history of early ships and seamanship from pre-dynastic Egypt to the Roman empire, from skiffs and barges to huge oared warships and royal yachts, Casson describes not only the ships themselves, but also the make-up and training of the crews, placement of weaponry, how cargo was stored, methods of navigation, harbor facilities, and the ways ships were named.

Description: Progress towards a more sustainable transport system has become an imperative in the European Union. The TERM indicators bench-mark the transport sector's overall development and its environmental impacts against current EU policy objectives and targets. Key policy instruments assessed include environmental regulation, spatial planning, investments in transport infrastructure and services, transport charges and taxes, cleaner technologies and fuels. Overall, the report shows that transport is becoming less and not more environmentally sustainable.
