Please join the Department of History at a reception to celebrate the work of Professor Elisabeth Köll, with an introduction by Parks M. Colbe, James L. Sellers Professor of History, University of Nebraska-Lincoln. 

As a vehicle to convey both the history of modern China and the complex forces still driving the nation's economic success, rail has no equal. Railroads and the Transportation of China is the first comprehensive history, in any language, of railroad operation from the last decades of the Qing Empire to present.
