Wolfgang Schivelbusch. Seeing Things as They Are: A Theory of Perception Hardcover.

Independant German scholar and cultural historian, student of philosophy, sociology and literature. Schivelbusch resides in Berlin and New York City. He remains unaffiliated with any university. In The Railway Journey, Schivelbusch delivers a delightfully readable, heavily illustrated cultural history of the railroad (European and American). What remains intriguing about Schivelbusch's work is his design analysis of the trains, the tracks and the compartments: his efforts include both social and scientific analysis.

Fascinating look at the development of train travel in the 19th century, especially the stress it placed on individuals and communities. Chapters cover the development of standard railroad time, the birth of iron and glass stations that served as communal temples to industry and gateways to the city, the fear of strangers as traveling companions, traveling on vacation for the scenery, accidents, the growth of traveler's insurance, lawsuits over mental injuries and the revival of the concept of shock to deal with them.
