Third Transportation Book by Joseph M. Giglio in Three Years: Judges of the Secret Court
Using the techniques of popular fiction, Giglio dramatizes how America's transportation system can be transformed into a vigorous engine for economic growth-and to make clear that our ability to meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive global economy depend on this transformation.
The book gives today's savvy readers a refreshing dose of real-world insights into creating a "New Covenant" on transportation-between the federal government, state and local governments, and private enterprise-that will not simply repair a broken transportation system, but will turn it into a crucial generator of economic growth. Copies of the book are available for purchase at www.Amazon.com and at www.hudson.org/bookstore.
