Synopsis

This book should be in the library of every transportation researcher. Ronald Sheck Intermodal and guideway research program director, Center for Urban Transportation Research, University of Florida There is no escape from transport. By sea, air, road or rail, we rely on transport to connect individuals, businesses and cities. At a time when deregulation and privatization are becoming global trends and concerns grow about sustainability, what is the future of transport for the 21st Century? The best-selling first edition of Modern Transport Geography provided a topical transport textbook, based on geographical theory and focused on contemporary issues. This new, expanded, updated and revised edition builds on the strengths of the earlier text by taking a more international and global perspective. The book brings together an unparalleled range of contributors, reflecting the international expertise of the Transport Research Groups of both the Royal Geographical Society and the Association of American Geographers.

Modern Transport Geography takes a principles and practice approach which enables students to develop their own ideas on the basis of the contextual, analytical and case material provided. from reviews of Edition I This book has all the ingredients of a successful textbook...The presentation is both stimulating and thought provoking. There is a lot of up to date information on current and case studies from all parts of the world. And, finally, there are plenty of references for further reading. What more could one ask?
