Book Synopsis George and Robert Stephenson by : Anthony Burton

This is a new biography of two great British engineering pioneers, who did much to develop the world we now live in. George and Robert Stephenson, were at the forefront of early railways and were at the cutting edge of modern engineering history. Industrial historian Anthony Burton looks into these two giants of the late Georgian and early Victorian age, who were responsible for the development of much of the early railway map in both Britain and other parts of the world. The work examines the lives of the two men and their ability to overcome some of the most pressing engineering problems of their time. This is a new work, with newly researched material published here for the first time, which take a fresh look at both pioneering engineers and their achievements.

Book Synopsis George and Robert Stephenson by : David Ross

From poverty to immense wealth, from humble beginnings to international celebrity, George and Robert Stephenson's was an extraordinary joint career. Together they overshadow all other engineers, with the possible exception of Robert's friend Isambard Kingdom Brunel, for one vital reason: they were winners. For them it was not enough to follow the progress made by others. They had to be the best. Colossal in confidence, ability, energy and ambition, George Stephenson was also a man of huge rages and jealousies, determined to create his own legend. Brought up from infancy by his father, Robert was a very different person. Driven by the need to be the super-successful son his father wanted, he struggled with self-distrust and morbid depression. More than once his career and reputation teetered on the edge of disaster. But by being flawed, he emerges as a far more appealing and sympathetic figure than the conventional picture of the 'eminent engineer.' David Ross's new biography of George and Robert Stephenson sheds new light on these two giants of British engineering.

Book Synopsis George & Robert Stephenson by : Anthony Burton

A dual biography of the father and son railroad engineers who revolutionized Victorian transportation and reshaped modern British life. Engineer and inventor George Stephenson is known as the Father of Railways. Together with his son Robert, he built the first steam locomotive to carry passengers on a public line. They also developed much of Britain’s early railway map. In George and Robert Stephenson, industrial historian Anthony Burton examines the lives of these two giants of the late Georgian and early Victorian ages. With new research, Burton offers a fresh look at the achievements of Robert Stephenson and Company Limited, the first engineering firm devoted to railway engines. Above all, he underscores the ability of both men to overcome some of the most pressing engineering problems of their time.
