What do we really know about bridges? Why and when were they built? What exactly does a particular part do? And, most importantly, why don't they fall down? In this book, Trevor Yorke uses illustrations, diagrams and photographs to explain the basic principles and styles of bridges so the reader can better appreciate them, recognise how they work and from what period they date.
