How does drinking water get to your tap, clean and under pressure? How does a pumpjack get oil out of the ground? What lies beneath a manhole cover? In sections on the six main areas of infrastructure - raw materials, water, power, transport (by road, rail, canal and air), communication and waste - this very accessible, illustrated guide provides an introduction to the technology that underpins modern life.
