Abstract

Isambard Kingdom Brunel was a 'little giant' of engineering whose works, like the Great Western Railway and the SS Great Eastern, have assumed iconic status. Although two descendants, lsambard Brunei and Celia Brunel Noble, produced informative biographies which were respectively worthy and engaging, for the last forty years the definitive account has been L. T. C. Rolf's. Here Angus Buchanan offers Brunel the full scholarly treatment he deserves.
