Yet from a contested existence before the First World War, chemical engineering had become one of the 'big four' engineering professions in Britain, and a major contributor to Western economies, by the end of the twentieth century. The subject had distinct national trajectories. In Britain - too long seen as shaped by American experiences - the emergence of recognised chemical engineers was the result of professional aspirations and contingency, and shaped by a shifting ecology of institutions, firms and government. Drawing upon extensive archival research, this book examines the evolution of technical practice, working environment and social interactions of chemical engineering. It will be of considerable interest to historians, sociologists of the professions, and to practitioners themselves+-+6741187425162ocn896857656file20150.47Divall, ColinCultural histories of sociabilities, spaces and mobilities72ocn042214809book19990.47Divall, ColinGoing places? : visitors enthusiasts and the public history of transportHistory61ocn039270686book19980.47Workshops, identity and labourHistory61ocn037195411book19970.47Perspectives on railway history : papers delivered at the SHOT meeting, London, August 1996History52ocn895625034book20131.00From rail to road and back again? : a century of transport competition and interdependencyHistory"In this volume, the interdependence between road and rail transport is investigated, providing a fascinating reappraisal of the complex and shifting nature of European transportation over the last hundred years. The first half the collection examines how railway companies reacted to increasing competition from road transport.

Rapid industrial growth during the early 19th century, coupled with the prospect of vast profits, drove inventors and entrepreneurs to develop steam locomotives, metal tracks and an array of daring tunnels, cuttings and bridges that created a nationwide system of railways in just 30 years. George Stephenson's Liverpool and Manchester Railway became the model for future inter-city travel for the next century and his fast, reliable locomotive, The Rocket, began a quest for speed that has defined our modern world. Episode two examines the impact the railway had on London in the late 1830s, linking it to Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester. This was the start of a truly national network - and one of the greatest civil engineering projects in history. The spread of the railways triggered a mania across Britain. Railway tycoons like Samuel Morton Peto and George Hudson made and lost fortunes as the stock markets boomed around these new developments. Yet the bubble burst in 1847 and shares plummeted. Thousands of ordinary shareholders filled the bankruptcy courts. However as Dan Snow reveals, the legacy of the mania was an incredible rail network for 19th century Britain and a revolution in the way people lived. Episode three examines how in just 50 years, Britain's railways grew from a handful of small lines carrying coal to the biggest industry in the nation. A nation had built the railways and now those railways would build a nation, influencing working conditions for its employees, proving a valuable export across the globe and even changing warfare. This series takes on one of the most significant sagas of change in history, the revolution of rail11ocn867892667book1997Divall, ColinRailway, place and identity : Working Papers in Railway Studies, Number 211ocn225480904book19801.00Butler, Stella V.
