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.
