"In Tackling Transport, curators and other historians examine transport artefacts and the systems of mobility in which they are embedded. They consider a variety of transport artefacts, from early jet engines to the automatically guided cars of the future. Curators also reflect on how theoretical notions about transport can be expressed in the practical context of a museum, and how a reappraisal of visitors' responses to transport artefacts is leading to new ways of showcasing the history of mobility."--BOOK JACKET.
