Editorial Reviews

Review

"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)

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

"This is an exceptionally well-crafted book that captures the essence of transport geography for the 21st century. It introduces a level of analysis focusing on accessibility and mobility that is fresh, innovative and very engaging. The authors provide a masterful synthesis of key issues in transport geography … invaluable for undergraduate and graduate courses in transportation."
–David Keeling, Western Kentucky University

"Long a marginalized part of the discipline, transportation geography has long been overdue for a renaissance. This volume leads the way in this renewal, coupling a sustained engagement with contemporary theoretical concerns."
–Barney Warf, Florida State University

"This is a remarkable book – it offers a fascinating pluralistic perspective on the economic, social, environmental and institutional challenges resulting from local and global trends in mobility."
–Peter Nijkamp, Free University, Amsterdam
