"Transportation Revolution and Transatlantic Migration, 1850-1914" (1999: final pre-publication draft)
This is very similar, though not precisely identical, to the final published article in Research in Economic History [REH] 19 (1999). Scholars wishing to quote specific passages are advised to double-check the final published version or consult the author [click "Contact" in black banner above] before doing so. SINCE the publication in REH, there have also been some minor updates and corrections to some of the numbers in the appendices. See for example, p. 278 of "Transport Capacity," and Appendix 1 and p. 21 of "Abstracts" [article details on this page below] re minor rounding errors in Tables A.6 to A.8 of THIS article.
