The fundamental principles and practice of movement by land, sea and air are amply covered, and make Principles of Transport not only of interest to the general reader but essential for students preparing for examinations of the Institute of Transport and Institute of Traffic Administration. Principles of Transport is the successor book to Elements of Transport which was first published in 1964. Although Elements of Transport ran successfully through two editions, not only much of the detail but also the academic approach to the subject has now changed and the original work is no longer entirely suited to present day concepts. It is partly for this reason that the Chartered Institute of Transport has seen fit to revise its syllabus and one of the new papers, which is designated 'Transport', identifies its subject as a separate discipline with unique principles and characteristics. In preparing this work, the needs of students studying for this new subject have been kept very much in mind and in so doing only a little more than fifty percent of the original Elements of Transport text has been retained. Even this is presented in an updated and modified form. The remainder of the work is completely new.
