    Comprising an innovative series of intersectional edited chapters, this book examines the ways that transport influences and is influenced by contemporary life in Britain. It interrogates key ideas around what transport does, why we should think about its impacts seriously and how we should change our attitude towards it in terms of our pursuit of key policy goals.

    Contributors explore what makes transport possible, the forces that shape transport development and how we can make transport better for both urban and rural populations in order to develop sustainable transport systems for the twenty-first century.

    Iain Docherty is a Professor of Public Policy and Governance and Head of Management at the University of Glasgow.

    Jon Shaw is the Associate Head of the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at Plymouth University.
