Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Nice (political science, Washington State U.) reviews the circumstances, expectations, and politics that led to the creation of a national passenger rail system out of what had been a myriad of struggling private services. He begins with a discussion of the various challenges that Amtrak faced when it was developed over 20 years ago, then covers such topics as the politics behind decisions about Amtrak service; the fiscal issues involved in attempts to modernize equipment; national and state subsidies; and the uneven results of Amtrak's experiments with international service.
