Critical Mass: Transport, Environment and Society in the 21st Century

Pluto Press, 20 sept. 1997 - 251 pages
Despite demanding enormous resources, transport policies (once put into practice) are still incapable of resolving basic problems of safety, health, welfare and congestion. Yet how can we resolve these problems whilst we are so dependent on the car? John Whitelegg argues that such dilemmas are universal: they are shared throughout Europe, Asia and North America, and can only be solved globally by a shared recognition of communality. At the center of the argument is the theory that transport is inextricably linked with consumerism and the lifestyles that car ownership has created.
