Principles of Transport, now established as the successor book to Elements of Transport, was first published in 1973 and covers the fundamental principles and practices of movement by land, water and air. I t is essential reading for students preparing for the examinations of the Chartered Institute of Transport and Institute of Traffic Administration and also for those attending transport courses organised by universities and other educational establishments. Whilst the book is designed to cover the entire syllabus of the subject 'Transport' in the Intermediate examination of the Chartered Institute of Transport, it also has relevance to 'Control and Organisation of Transport' which is a part of the Final examination of the same Institute.

The policy of illustrating theory by reference to actual practices has proved popular and has been retained. This approach, however, together with legislation, at least in Great Britain, enacted since 1973 has necessitated a substantial revision of the text, hence this second edition. Although the legal aspects of the subject relate to British law, transport as a science knows no political boundaries and the examples and illustrations are drawn from sources which are worldwide. Principles of Transport, therefore, whilst written primarily for educational purposes, will also have interest for the general reader.
