From the Back Cover:

Our lives are supported and carried by the aeroplane, and yet atthe same time, they are haunted and threatened by it. Thistheoretically informed research explores what the development andtransformation of air travel has meant for societies, individuals,and the status of human life itself. Author Peter Adey reveals thecomplex politics of this 'aereality', positioning it at thecritical apex of political, cultural, and social relations.

Through a series of detailed international case studies, Adeytraces the history of aviation over the past century, showing howthe early promises of flight, symbolized and performed in thespectacular airshows at Hendon and Rheims, evolved into thedevastating bombing campaigns of World War II and the rise ofinternational terrorism. Along the way, we are shown how aerialmobilities may transform societies and subjects, shape individualrights and identities, and alter the very workings of the humanbody. Soaring beyond the concept of air travel as a metaphoricaltool, Aerial Life offers startling historical evidence andbold new ideas about how the social and material spaces of theaeroplane are considered in the modern era.

About the Author:

Peter Adey is Lecturer in Cultural Geography at Keele University, Staffordshire, England. His research interests include the study of mobility and cultures of aviation and security. Adey is the author of Mobility (2009).
