With over 150 photos, many full page and of historical, national, and international importance, this book captures on film wrecks and crashes of all kinds: air, highway, railway, and water as well as accidents involving trucks, buses, cars, light planes, jetliners, seaplanes, freight trains, and ships. European wrecks, Asian wrecks, and American wrecks are also well represented. This book adds to the intriguing iconography of travel accidents introduced by the first volume, Smashups. You are invited here to pore over the photographs and captions and experience the thrill of danger in the comfort and safety of your own home. AUTHOR: Robert Reed is an adjunct Professor of English at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. Mr. Reed has written earlier books about train wrecks, streamline industrial design, the New York City elevated railroad system, and nineteenth-century Washington, D.C.
