The impact of transport on the global environment is an issue attracting world-wide attention in the 1990s. This important book sheds new light on the environmental costs of transport. It discusses all modes of transport and their effects of major problems such as greenhouse gases, depletion of non-renewable resources, urban sprawl, acid rain, oil spillage etc. Drawing on the most recent research in environmental economics, it discusses problems of regulation and the implications for economic policy. This genuinely international and comparative book will be essential reading for economists, transport planners, policymakers and environmental scientists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Kenneth Button is acknowledged as a leading authority on transport policy, so it is no surprise that he has written an erudite and instructive work in his area of specialization. His book is also accessible.' -- John Gordon, International Affairs
`As before the author looks at the general principles applying to all forms of transport and both students and those concerned with the supply of transport services will welcome this new edition.' -- Aslib Book Guide
`This fascinating book provides an insight into the mind of an economist obviously concerned about the limitation of his profession in solving the problems posed for the environment by the growth of transport.' -- Mayer Hillman, Cities
