9780857242334: Auto Motives: Understanding Car Use Behaviours (0)

Our global reliance on private automobiles as the primary means for transporting individuals is likely to become of increasing political importance over the next ten to twenty years. While the individual benefits of car-based travel continues to be recognized, the wider environmental and social cost of automobiles is also significant and the need for political intervention to control some of their worst effects is increasingly accepted within policy circles internationally. It is within this wider context that Auto Motives is set. It critically evaluates the evidence for better understanding what drives us to drive . Uniquely, it draws together and explains the diverse theoretical literatures that pertain to people s auto motives and considers these theories in light of empirical research of what actually informs our automobile decisions and behaviours. With contributions from leading academic experts from around the world, its core arguments and narratives are presented in such a way as to offer widespread appeal to a wide ranging audience.

Review:

A session at the 2009 Transportation Research Board annual meeting in Washington, DC inspired this volume, and some of the 13 studies included are revised from presentations there. Scholars of transportation, urban planning, and related fields not psychology or sociology cover theories and concepts of car use, the factors that motivate choices, and differences between people. Among specific topics are conceptualizing car dependence, insights on car-use behaviors from behavioral economics, the car as material possession, driving to the breadline, and the role of spatial and occupational factors in commuting to work by immigrants in New Jersey. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Annotation 2011 Book News Inc. Portland, OR
