Simon Cook‘s recent contribution to the Journal of Transport Geography is an essay style book review focused on Ole Jensen‘s books examining mobilities: Staging Mobilities; and Designing Mobilities.
He identifies the former as a more conventional academic text and the latter as ‘part academic-, part coffee-table book’. He recommends each book as a strong introduction to contemporary mobilities for transport geographers with consideration for the interdisciplinarity, yet feels only one fully achieves its aims.
