Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Notes that since the last major study of the geography of air transport 30 years ago, the industry has been massively deregulated, and its center has shifted from national carriers toward global airline systems forged by the alliance of large carriers. The section on historical processes and contemporary patterns considers markets, geopolitics, economics, uneven development, and globalization. The regions looked at in some detail include the US, Europe, the North Atlantic, the Asia- Pacific; the middle east, Africa, and Latin America are also covered. Airports and their provision and the environment complete the coverage. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
