Date de parution : 23/06/2015
The TGV in the past, in the present and in the future

Is it actually that profitable? Will it survive in the face of future competition? Does it serve different areas and regions in a fair way? Have other countries adopted the same high speed strategy? Each country has its own ideas. What are these ideas based on?
This book explores the history of high speed in France and across the world over the last 30 years and more. It attempts to determine what travelling at high speed actually means in technical, economic, environmental and societal terms. It seeks to address a range of difficult subjects in a simple yet comprehensive way, providing a fresh perspective and linking these topics to everyday life and culture.
The TGV is not an end in itself. It is a means to an end: namely the survival of rail. In a world where the ends of its journey. It will remain a key figure for many years to come, sometimes as hero, other times as villain.
By the way, have you ever tried counting the number of TGV stations in Paris? You will find the surprising answer inside.
