Constructing Iron Europe Transnationalism and Railways in the Interbellum

by Irene Anastasiadou

Part of the Technology and European History Series Series

Constructing Iron Europe Transnationalism and Railways in the Interbellum Synopsis

Conventional histories portray the development of railway infrastructures as a tool to build empires and nation states. Recent scholarship however, has stressed the importance of a transnational perspective beyond an exclusive focus on the nation state. The new perspective enriches both the history of modern Europe and European integration. Constructing Iron Europe demonstrates how during the interwar years key players saw railroads as instruments for building a transnational European community. Based on new archival research, Anastasiadou not only sheds light on patterns of internationalization of railways, but also explores the co-construction of the national and the European in the case of the Greek railways in the Interbellum period.
