Through an in-depth examination of the integral nature of social networks and walking this book draws conclusions about social processes of exclusion, identity and the making of community. Much work on social networks and mobilities focuses on the 'death of distance' and the globalisation of social networks and the obvious interaction with mobilities. This book looks at community networks and contributes to the body of work understanding the interaction of the global and local scales in social networks. This timely contribution focuses on the relatively neglected area of routinised, everyday walking at a time when policy makers and practitioners struggle to make walking more attractive. In addition it leads the way in understanding the impacts on transport provision and daily life of the rapidly evolving Web2.0 technologies for assisting walking. The findings are placed in a practical policy context to provide practitioners with indications of tools and techniques for use in generating evidence on, and assessing processes of exclusion and inclusion. The academic contribution of this volume is to take the micro social spatial and temporal practices of everyday life and provide an analysis that links those to the macro social changes such as globalisation or technological revolution and social processes of exclusion and resistance.
