Excerpt from the Preface to Transportation, Fith Edition

Walter Weart new member of the writing team, has added more recent tables, examples and recommended readings, assuring that this edition is as up to date as possible.

To support the instructor, Walter Weart has written a new instructor's manual with a test bank (ISBN 0-324- 00752-3). This supplement includes Learning Objectives, key terms, and a detailed chapter outline for each chapter. There are notes for the cases, Internet activities and other additional teaching materials. The testing material is comprised mainly of multiple choice, short answer and essay questions.

- Also new to this edition is an appendix with URL listings for all companies and organizations related to transportation that we mention in the text.

While making changes to the new edition, we retained features of the book that made previous editions successful: "Stop Off", that expand chapter material and deepen students understanding with real life examples, thorough chapter outlines, and summaries along with suggested readings and cases.

Richard Barsness..........Lehigh University
Michael Demtesky........University of Virginia
