Abstract

Mobilities: new perspectives on transport and society shows how far mobilities as a paradigm has developed. Mobilities has always been a bit edgy, offering art where science dominated, adding complexity and variability to a static need for proof and cost-effectiveness, offering new challenges to the validity of traditional approaches like modelling and statistics. It asked the difficult questions of transport studies that needed to be asked, revealing the depth of social disadvantage across the world that transport has not only contributed towards but activity created. Mobilities: new perspectives on transport and society shows how this is continuing but within a shifted paradigm, one that is beginning to be embraced by the wider transport studies context.
