Book Review: Sustainable Automotive Technologies 2013 Proceedings of the 5th International Conference ICSAT 2013, by J. Wellnitz, A. Subic, R. Trufin (Eds.)

Aoife Foley‘s review of Sustainable Automotive Technologies 2013 Proceedings of the 5th International Conference ICSAT edited by Jörg Wellnitz, Aleksandar Subic and Ramona Trufin highlights that these proceedings are ‘an engineering rather than a transport geography exploration of sustainable automotive technologies’.  However, as Foley states, solutions to the reliance on unsustainable automotive technologies are ‘multidisciplinary and multi-sectorial in nature’.   Read the review in full here to find out more about the contribution to knowledge that this edited volume makes.
