Handbook on Transport and Development
With 45 chapters from leading international authors, the book is organised around three main themes:
• urban structure and travel;
• transport and spatial impacts;
• wider dimensions in transport and development.
The chapters each present commentary on key issues within these themes, presenting the debate on the impacts of urban structure on travel, the impacts of transport investment on development, and social and cultural change on travel. A multitude of competing inter-disciplinary perspectives are considered – leaving the reader with an invaluably comprehensive and critical understanding of the field.
This major Handbook will serve as a guide for undergraduates and graduate students, researchers, consultants, and also practitioners and policy makers, wishing to find a comprehensive and original reference to research on transport and development.
