The impact of constant technological change upon our perception of the world is so pervasive as to have become a commonplace of modern society. But this was not always the case; as Wolfgang Schivelbusch points out in this fascinating study, our adaptation to technological change--the development of our modern, industrialized consciousness--was very much a learned behavior. In The Railway Journey, Schivelbusch examines the origins of this industrialized consciousness by exploring the reaction in the nineteenth century to the first dramatic avatar of technological change, the railroad. In a highly original and engaging fashion, Schivelbusch discusses the ways in which our perceptions of distance, time, autonomy, speed, and risk were altered by railway travel. As a history of the surprising ways in which technology and culture interact, this book covers a wide range of topics, including the changing perception of landscapes, the death of conversation while traveling, the problematic nature of the railway compartment, the space of glass architecture, the pathology of the railway journey, industrial fatigue and the history of shock, and the railroad and the city. Belonging to a distinguished European tradition of critical sociology best exemplified by the work of Georg Simmel and Walter Benjamin, The Railway Journey is anchored in rich empirical data and full of striking insights about railway travel, the industrial revolution, and technological change. Now updated with a new preface, The Railway Journey is an invaluable resource for readers interested in nineteenth-century culture and technology and the prehistory of modern media and digitalization.… (més)

Wir leben in einer Welt in der sich vieles scheinbar schnell ändert. Blickt man aber fast 200 Jahre zurück, in die Anfangsphase der Eisenbahn, sieht man außergewöhnlich viele Veränderungen.
Diesen Rückblick gibt uns Schivelbusch, der in seinem Buch beschreibt, wie unsere Welterfahrungen stark auf der Entwicklung der Eisenbahn beruhen.
Aus einer Reise, zu Fuß oder mit Pferd, die sich tagelang hinzog, wurde etwas, das man am ehesten mit unserem Gefühl, das wir bei Flugreisen noch manchmal haben, eine Ort zu Ort Versetzung, vergleichen kann, aber kein Reiseerlebnis.
Die Geschichte geht aber noch weiter, die Gestalt unserer Städte, der Warenumschlag, die Angstneurose, immer findet der Autor Wurzeln in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Das ist schon eine sehr spannende Geschichte, die ich mit viel Vergnügen gelesen habe.
(4 Punkte, Abwertung da längere Zitate aus dem Latein und Französisch nicht übersetzt sind, leider zu wenig Bilder, Druckbild spiegelt, eBook nicht verfügbar) ( )

Essential reading for anyone even vaguely interested in any of the following: railroads, technology, communication, vision, travel, industrialization, time, the United States, Europe, or the nineteenth century. That should be just about everybody.

This is one of the most fantastic books I've ever read, readable but scholarly (as so many books strive to be, but fall short on one end or the other). Schivelbusch examines railroads and their considerable impact on nineteenth-century life. Most interesting to me was his argument about perception and vision, which had to be restructured or rethought because of the different modes of viewing the RR required. ( )

It upsets me to think I'm the only LTer who owns this book. It completely confirmed to me my desire to be a historian, demonstrating beautifully how popular perceptions of time and space were transformed by the development of railway transport in the nineteenth century. It spans novels, mechanics, science and countless other domains. Highly recommended. ( )
