Description - World Strategic Highways by Guy Arnold
World Strategic Highways provides a detailed examination of 45 of the most important "strategic highways" in the world. These highways may take the form of roads, railways, rivers and canals, or air and sea routes. They are of special significance because, throughout history, they have acted as major trade routes for a number of countries; have military or strategic significance; act to bind a country or countries together; or, in the case of rivers, act as boundaries or borders between two or more countries. They include the Suez and Panama canals, the Rhine and Amazon rivers, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, the Khyber Pass and Maputo Corridor, the Silk Road, the Channel Tunnel, international airways and routes used in the drugs trade. Location maps are provided throughout the book.
