The SAGE Handbook of Transport Studies


© 2013 | 464 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
The SAGE Handbook of Transport Studies is an authoritative survey of contemporary transportation systems examined in terms of economic, social, and technical issues, as well as environmental challenges. Incorporating an extensive range of approaches - from modes, terminals, planning and policy to more recent developments related to supply chain management, information systems and sustainability/ecology - the work provides a cohesive and extensive overview of transport studies.  

Authored by international experts in their field, each individual chapter bridges a broad range of conceptual, theoretical and geographical perspectives, and the Handbook is divided into six sections:

 

• Transport in the Global World

• Transport in Regions and Localities

• Transport, Economy and Society

• Transport Policy

• Transport Networks and Models

• Transport and the Environment

 

This Handbook will be an indispensible resource for academics, planners, and policy-makers.
