Book Reviews

The SAHB is particularly interested in seeing transport research committed to print, particularly in book and pamphlet form. Reviews can also be seen in the SAHB ‘Times’ magazine printed four times a year. If we see a book that is interesting, one of our member will often write a review, or we may ask to use a review written by a journalist. We therefore offer below, books that have been reviewed and, which should be available to purchase from the publisher named. A review does not mean that the book is endorsed by the SAHB.
