<P>Drawing on a wide array of primary material, Richard DeLuca examines how land, law, and technology have shaped Connecticut and its transportation systems, including aviation, highways, bridges, ferries, steamboats, canals, railroads, electric trolleys, and water ports, in Connecticut and along the multi-state travel corridor from New York to Boston. This well-illustrated book focuses on key events in the development of transportation technology and legislation. It is arranged chronologically, and by highlighting themes from each period shows the implications of state's transportation history on current debates about infrastructure and funding.</P>
