Summary

This book offers the reader a comprehensive understanding and the multitude of methods utilized in the research of urban mobilities with cities and ‘the urban’ as its pivotal axis. It covers theories and concepts for scholars and researchers to understand, observe, and analyze the world of urban mobilities.

The Handbook of Urban Mobilities facilitates the understanding of urban mobilities within a historic conscience of societal transformation. It explores key concepts and theories within the ‘mobilities turn’ with a particular urban framework, as well as the methods and tools at play when empirical, urban mobilities research is undertaken. This book also explores the urban mobilities practices related to commutes, particular modes of moving; the exploration of everyday life and embodied practices as they manifest themselves within urban mobilities; and the themes of power, conflict and social exclusion. A discussion of urban planning, public control, and governance is also undertaken in the book, wherein the themes of infrasturctures, technologies, and design are duly considered.

With chapters written in an accessible style, this handbook carries timely contributions within the contemporary state-of-the-art of urban mobilities research. It will thus be useful for academics and students of graduate programs and post-graduate studies within disciplines such as urban geography, political science, sociology, anthropology, urban planning, traffic- and transportation planning, architecture and urban design.
