Overview

Mobility is one of the basic principles of modernity. The book presents a movement that begins with the macrosocial transformations linked to mobility and ends with empirical discussions on the new forms of mobility and their implications for everyday life. It opens with a study of the social changes unique to the second age of modernity. It continues with a discussion of the implications of these changes for sociology research. The book is a foray into the exciting new field of interdisciplinary mobility research informed by theoretical reflection and empirical investigation.

Mobility is a basic principle of modernity besides others like individuality, rationality, equality, and globality. Taking its cue from this concept, the book presents a movement that begins with the macrosocial transformations linked to mobility and ends with empirical discussions on the new forms of mobility and their implications for everyday life.

The book opens with a study of the social changes unique to the second age of modernity, with contributions from Ulrich Beck, John Urry, Wolfgang Bonss and Sven Kesselring. It continues with a discussion of the implications of these changes for sociological research. Authors such as Vincent Kaufmann, Weert Canzler, Norbert Schneider, Beate Collet, Ruth Limmer and Gerlinde Vogl focus on a series of field examinations, both qualitative and quantitative, of emerging mobilities.

The book is a foray into the exciting new field of interdisciplinary mobility research informed by theoretical reflection and empirical investigation.
