Overview

It is widely acknowledged that transport is a necessary condition for development to occur. Transport issues have become highly contentious and politicised. This volume presents a balanced review of transport provision and the development process in the Third World. Providing a comprehensive survey of the range of transport modes and forms utilised in rural, urban and international contexts, the book examines the development implications of such choices, together with appropriate policies to address transport problems in the Developing World.
This is a stimulating and provocative text. Its distinctive structure and logic challenge conventional wisdoms, and raise key issues seldom addressed in transport courses.
