"La navigation intérieure", or inland navigation (IWT) is a special category of public action in France which has progressively emerged during the eighteenth century. It induces a new perception of traffic that the advent of a system of interconnected water channels would be a way for the state to build a national market and unifying its territory. Insofar as the king and his administration will be the first beneficiaries of enrichment induced by increased business and opportunities for movement, they should be the main promoters. Clearly formulated in the second half of the eighteenth century, such a design is the result of a unique history in which the interacting economic, political, intellectual and administrative. Since Colbert and even 1770s, inland waterways rose from the stall next to public concern that administrative object before being introduced in public policy from Turgot. The book explores the pathways by which the prosecution has built and institutionalized grasp the intellectual and administrative procedures, identifying sets of actors with which it was forged.
