The companion guide to the ASCE 150th Anniversary museum exhibit, this book is an engaging look at the relationship of the public to the civil engineering networks that define modern life. Each chapter of this highly illustrated book explores a fundamental question behind infrastructure and the role it plays in individual lives. Who's responsible? How safe is it? Why so big? Is it available? How much does it cost? How long will it last? The answers to these questions define our lives, and this exhibition and book examines the indivisible links between our private lives and public works. It shows the exciting engagement between civil engineering and the public!
