Mobility: A New Urban Design and Transport Planning Philosophy for a Sustainable Future

This brand new book by John Whitelegg of the Stockholm Environment Institute sets out a rationale for a transformation of the mobility  landscape and argues that the sustainable transport options simply cannot thrive in a world that remains wedded to more mobility and the manifestations of that cultural and political bias (subsidy, infrastructure and an astonishing lack of attention to death, injury, air pollution, climate change and social justice).  See here for more information and await a review in the TGRG.

Book review: Introduction to Tourism Transport by Sven Gross and Louisa Klemmer.

Jo Guiver reviewed Introduction to Tourism Transport by Sven Gross and Louise Klemmer.   She recognises the challenges in writing about tourism transport and emphasises the research which allowed for thorough coverage of the breadth of modes available. Her review, available here, concludes that the book provides an excellent reference point but this introduction could be built upon to consider the interrelationships between supply and demand and implications for sustainability.
