Urban transport, its problems and possibilities are high on the political agenda of many developed and developing countries. The essays in this book address the problems and possibilities of urban transport from historical, political, social and economic perspectives. The contributors bring a blend of practical and theoretical expertise to bear on their chosen subjects, and the book is inter-disciplinary in its approach. It ranges across various modes, historical periods and geographic areas, and includes an introductory chapter on the problems and possibilities of urban transport and a concluding chapter which draws the themes of the book together and identifies likely future developments.
