Craig Morton‘s carefully considered review of Michael Hülsmann, and Dirk Fornahl‘s edited volume, Evolutionary Paths Towards the Mobility Patterns of the Future, was published in Volume 38 of the Journal of Transport Geography.
A short summary including a link to a copy of the review follows.
Morton commends this edited volume as an introductory text for those wanting to understand more about electric vehicles (EVs). His review outlines how the book provides a breadth of understanding, with the first part considering how EVs may contribute to the existing mobility needs of society, the second part evaluating the challenges which EVs pose to a range of stakeholders and the third part comprising a critical assessment of the practical experiences relating to the EV trials in Germany.
The review complements the role of the book in providing access to knowledge to English speakers, as much of the research presented stems from German universities. However, the reviewer also highlights that knowledge gets lost in translation on a few occasions.
