9780080440224: Delivering Sustainable Transport: A Social Science Perspective

Until now, transport has been left to planners and economists, but this timely book raises issues that these disciplines exclude. This book offers examples of how transport analysis can be diversified and broadened to include important theoretical approaches and perspectives not previously used in mainstream transport studies. These provocative essays cover a wide range of issues and opens up a debate on the effects of travel and transport on various social groups, from bikers to pre-school age children, in the West and in industrialising countries. Leading authorities from transport planning, sociology, geography and environmental studies show how different frameworks - from theories of consumption to ethnography - can provide fresh insights and inspire new policies.

Review:

"Overall this book does not - nor does it even attempt to - provide the holy grail that is the answer of how one implements sustainable transport policy on the ground . . . It does, though, contribute further ideas on a number of general and more specific policy areas and for this reason it is worth a look." Local Transport Today, July 2003.

"The book makes useful contributions to the debate, some by well-known authors in the field. Whilst, it would have been very demanding to provide all the answers of how to delivery sustainable transport, this book provokes debate." The Transport Geography, Vol 30, No 2, Summer 2003.
