LAURIE MANCHESTER Arizona State University. Russia Enters the Railway Age, 1842-1855. By Richard Mowbray Haywood. His first monograph, The Beginnings of Railway Development in Russia in the Reign of Nicholas I, 1835-1842 (1969), was painstakingly thorough and made a valuable contribution by breaking new ground. But the subject-the short line from St. Petersburg to the imperial residences of Tsarskoe Selo and Pavlovsk-was necessarily limited in scope. His second book is anything but that, and it establishes Haywood as the leading historian of early Russian railroad development.

The growth of factories swelled the populations of towns and cities, public buses and passenger trains were introduced, railway lines criss-crossed the land and steamships started to plough the seas. The invention of the telegraph was a breakthrough in long-distance communication, while photography would change the way that everyone saw the world.

The Nord Express connected the city with Warsaw, Berlin, Cologne and Paris, it facilitated and intensified the transfer of ideas between Western and Central Europe and Russia.

This seventh volume in "The Adventure of Discovery & Inventions" series covers the period 1855 to 1880, the age of the railway. By the mid 19th century the seething dynamism of the Industrial Revolution was settling into a period of economic and political consolidation. The Bessemer process accelerated the steel-making industry and, supplied with strong steel rails, Britain took its railway-building expertise around the world. The French masterminded construction of the Suez Canal, which cut weeks from sailing times to the East. The USA was fast developing into an industrial economy to rival those of Europe. This was the era in which the global market was born. The rural exodus continued as conurbations grew around mining, iron and steel, and also around the newborn oil industry. Inventions that would transform daily life ranged from the internal combustion engine to artificial dyes, and from pasteurisation to the telephone.
