Reviews

"Any Canadian or American with a serious interest in transportation policy will find this thoughtful and informative book worth reading." -- Canadian Public Administration


"Well written and timely, New Departures provides excellent background from the current debate over the future of Amtrak and VIA Rail (in Canada)." -- Choice


"Dispassionately examines every angle of the perplexing rail-passenger dilemma in North America." -- Louisville Courier-Journal


"A seminal work that lays out all the dimensions of the current state of intercity rail passenger service in both the United States and Canada." -- New York History


"An informed analysis of where rail passenger operations in the U.S. and Canada have been, where they are, and where they may be going, along with a look at those countries whose passenger trains are light years ahead of ours." -- Railway Age


" New Departures is not only the most comprehensive look at rail passenger service in North America, it is the most timely. With air travel suddenly becoming a mature industry after September 11th, the nation is realizing that it is missing a vital balance in passenger transportation, a balance that could be provided by high speed passenger rail service. Anthony's book lays out the best policy framework I have ever seen for making rail passenger investments. Anyone engaged in debating the role of high speed rail in North America should read this book." -- Thomas Downs
