NYT Book Review: "The Routes of Man"

Janet Maslin of the New York Times has reviewed a collection of essays by Ted Conover, The Routes of Man:  How Roads are Changing the World and the Way We Live Today."  Click here for a link to Maslin's review and here for a link to an excerpt.  The essays are not an attempt to survey the effects of road building on land use law, but rather treat the topic of roads in a series of six essays and discuss more broadly the effects of roads on everyday life.  For a look at some of Conover's photographs, the Times provides a few here.  Maslin ultimately finds the collection disjointed.  Nevertheless, Conover's book attempts to shed new light on a facet of transportation in unanticipated ways.
