Key Benefit: This comprehensive overview of the entire field of transport geography explores both institutional and analytical approaches to both intra- and inter-urban transport and relates them throughout with contemporary examples. Key Topics: Describes the historical development of U.S. transportation and selected institutional aspects in the context of some basic concepts and themes in transportation geography. Takes a closer look at a few contemporary problem areas, e.g.: Airline Deregulation and Intermodalism. Explains the basic rationale and methods of four different types of transportation analysis (and how they have evolved from their early formulations to their more recent ones): descriptive network analysis models; explanatory and predictive spatial interaction and disaggregate behavioral models; urban transport modeling; normative or optimizing allocation analysis, including hub-and-spoke analysis.
