From the authors of the successful titles, The Civil Engineers and The Contractors, comes The Consulting Engineers. 

This beautifully illustrated full colour book tells the full story of British consulting engineers for the first time. From their early beginnings, through the establishment of the profession in the 18th century, the `Railway Age’ of the 1800s, their post-World War Two international boom and on to the recent commercialisation and consolidation of the industry.  

It covers not just what consulting engineers do but also how their profession started and grew rapidly, and how the role has changed and continues to evolve.  

The Consulting Engineers is an ideal purchase for any engineer interested in the history of their industry. It will appeal to professional engineers, academics, students of engineering, historians and the wider public who are interested in the social and industrial history of Great Britain, and its influence throughout the world.
