From the Publisher:

Bridging the gap between geographical theory and contemporary changes and issues, this basic text gives you an up-to-date examination of modern transport geography. Each chapter uses examples from a variety of environments such as urban/rural, national/regional/, local/global, advanced countries/less developed countries and capitalist/communist/third world countries. Considerable emphasis is placed on multimodal and intermodal questions.

About the Author:

Brian Hoyle is Reader in the Department of Geography, University of Southampton. Richard Knowles is Reader in the Department of Geography, University of Salford.
