(1990-1994)', and 'Responding to Privatization (1981-1997)'. Author Terry Gourvish is considered Britain's leading railway historian.

British Rail 1974-1997 is a fascinating work. Its length and detail constitute a rare, thorough, and largely unbiased examination of policy formulation over an extended period for a major national railway system.
To this chronicle, Dr Gourvish adds thoughtful and persuasive evaluations, well grounded in business organisation and economic theory. This is an extraordinary resource for scholars in business and transport history.
Terry Gourvish is the recognised authority on the history of British Railways as a nationalised industry, and the expectations of readers familiar with his previous work will not be disappointed. The book will be a definitive scholarly source of reference for decades to come.
... important insights into the informal operations of the Board.
If you want to understand how British Rail was shaped as an organisation and business in the 20 or so years before privatisation, this is the book to read.
This is a truly monumental work. It is Gourvish's analysis of the issues that gives the book its special interest and authority.
This book is a must-read and a must-have.
