The Brunels - Father and Son


Anthony Burton has been writing on the history of transport and technology for many years, but had never written on Isambard Kingdom Brunel or his father, Marc Brunel.

In this book he writes on both men and their achievements, especially showing how each influenced, helped and inspired the other, in particular how Marc's example and support was there for much of Isambard's life.

The broad stories are well known, but Burton adds another dimension to them, making this a thoroughly interesting, and readable double biography. 221 pages with many B&W illustrations, including photographs.
