'This very interesting book provides an excellent multi-disciplinary introduction into the functioning of transport systems and the interaction with their environments.' -- Erik Verhoef, VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands
'The editors of this important book have clearly identified that few writings on transport treat the transport system as a whole. Implicit in this is a need for a genuinely multidisciplinary approach. An impressive list of contributors ensures that the book draws on the latest research whilst providing new insights into some of the key challenges facing transport students and researchers, transport providers and policy makers.' -- Roger Vickerman, University of Kent, UK
'Since ancient times transportation has brought our world together. But the need for connectivity and accessibility in a spatially differentiated world has prompted the emergence of very complex transportation systems. This book offers a fresh and operational contribution to a better understanding of the complexity and manageability of a mobile world, by addressing in a balanced way both conceptual and applied or policy aspects of modern transportation systems.' -- Peter Nijkamp, Free University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
