Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I would argue that in all aspects—insight, critique, challenge, and reflection—the editors have crafted an excellent tome and one from which undergraduates, policy makers, communities, and individuals will certainly benefit." (Environment and Planning C: Government and Policy, 2009)

"A timely, policy-relevant and cutting-edge collection which confirms the centrality of transport not only in how we understand contemporary globalised processes, but how these mobilities and flows are intimately woven into the fabric of everyday life." (Geographical Journal, 2009)

"A valuable edited collection ... comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date guide. ... A wealth of student-friendly features and the collection is lavishly illustrated ... An excellent way into the topic." (Times Higher Education)
