Summary and Info
Bringing together an international and multi-disciplinary team of leading transportation scholars, this book's central premise is that the car as the dominant mode of travel needs to be problematised. It examines a wide range of issues that are central to automobility by situating it within social, economic, and political contexts, and by combining social theory, specific case studies and policy-oriented analysis. With contributors primarily from North America, and several from Britain and New Zealand, the book focuses on the Anglo world, but also takes account of the global phenomenon of automobility by considering the cases of China and Chile. With each contributor referencing other chapters and taking, for example, opposing positions on a question, or different approaches to the same subject matter, the volume provides a coherent and comprehensive analysis of issues.
