Fifty years ago on April 26, 1956, the freighter Ideal X steamed from Berth 26 in Port Newark, New Jersey. Flying the flag of the Pan-Atlantic Steamship Company, she set out for Houston with an unusual cargo: 58 trailer trucks lashed to her top deck. But they weren't trucks: they were steel containers removed from their running gear, waiting to be lifted onto empty truck beds when Ideal X reached Texas. She docked safely, and a revolution was launched; not only in shipping, but in the way the world trades. Brian Cudahy provides a vivid, fast-paced account of the container-ship revolution - from the maiden voyage in 1956 of Ideal X to the entrepreneurial vision and technological breakthroughs that make it possible to ship more goods more cheaply than ever before the 200 million containers shipped every year that are the lifeblood of the new global economy

I declare the subway open, said Mayor George B. McClelland at about 2 p.m. on October 27, 1904. His hand on the switch, McClelland drove the new electric-powered cars of the Interborough Rapid Transit Company out of the City Hall station for the ride under Broadway to 145th Street in Harlem. After a decade of digging, New York was moving uptown. And everything began to change. Brian Cudahy offers a fascinating tribute to the world the subway created. Taking a fresh look at one of the marvels of the 20th century, Cudahy creates a vivid sense of this extraordinary achievement?how the city was tr

Cudahy begins with a history of the Circle Line and its forerunners and erstwhile competitors in the around-Manhattan sightseeing business. Next, he gives us the fascinating story of the fastest ocean linear of all time: the S.S. United States. The noble history of the New York Fire Department's fire boats is next, followed by the story of the Iron Steamboat Company's sidewheelers, which ferried passengers to the magical Coney Island from 1881 to 1932. Then there is the tragic 1932 explosion of the steamboat Observation, with its parallels to an earlier and even more devastating tragedy at nearly the same spot. Finally, Cudahy tells, in fascinating detail, of the New York-to-Bermuda cruises - as they were in yesteryear, and as they are today

When the first cars of New York's new underground railroad left City Hall station on October 27, 1904, they were the property of a private firm called the Interborough Rapid Transit, running on public tracks. The IRT realized what seemed an impossible dream for more than 30 years - financing, designing, and building an underground railroad that ran from lower Manhattan right to the Bronx. Ground was broken in 1900; four years later, New Yorkers would ride uptown and down on the rapid transit railroad they called "the subway." sSo spectacular was the achievement, and so proud was the IRT, that the company published this testament to the massive public work it had just completed. Originally printed in a larger, tabloid-size format, this remarkable book is a detailed, lavishly illustrated account of the building of the first subway
