Synopsis

This is an authoritative collection of previously published articles on important aspects of the `automobile age'.



The volume has been divided into five areas of interest. Part I focuses on supply side issues related to the car industry, technological change in the transport sector and future developments of automobile technology. Parts II, III and IV deal with the demand for automobile transport within the overall transport system. The final section deals with private and social costs, externalities such as accidents, congestion and pollution, and policy interventions.



Rapidly growing car ownership has brought about a remarkable increase in mobility. The mobility and travel choices need to be analysed within complex networks. The strong mutual interactions between transport and spatial developments have led to an intense debate on `car dependence' and related spatial systems analyses.



This collection will be an invaluable source of reference to students, teachers and researchers in the field of transport studies and the history of the car industry.
