Reviews

"This timely and informative book is unique in addressing issues of social exclusion and distributive justice in transportation from a comparative perspective. It contains introductory material useful in teaching and more advanced case studies useful in research and advocacy work. It should be read by anyone seriously interested in the subject." Martin Wachs, Director, Institute of Transportation Studies, University of California, Berkeley "With both transport and poverty and social exclusion at the top of the current political agenda, this highly topical book fulfils a pressing need for a publication that spans the transport and social policy fields." Chris Banister, School of Planning and Landscape, The University of Manchester
