The key aim of this volume is to demonstrate ways in which an understanding of history can be used to inform present-day transport and mobility policies. This is not to say that history repeats itself, or that every contemporary transport dilemma has an historical counterpart: rather, the contributors to this book argue that in many contexts of transport planning a better understanding of the context and consequences of past decisions and processes could lead to more effective policy decisions. Collectively the authors explore the ways in which the methods and approaches of historical research may be applied to contemporary transport and policy issues across a wide range of transport modes and contexts. By linking two bodies of academic research that for the most part remain separate this volume helps to inform current transport and mobility policies and to stimulate innovative new research that links studies of both past and present mobilities.

’The rich historical experiences and the means by which the present can learn from the past provide the source material for this diverse and engaging set of essays. It successfully captures societal concerns over disadvantage and marginalisation, the quality of everyday life, and how marketing shapes the ways in which we think about travel.’ David Banister, University of Oxford, UK ’Academics often like to argue that policy makers can learn from history. This volume not only explains how such learning can occur; it also offers concrete examples and success stories, enabling others to create truly usable histories. Moreover, the volume provides innovative social science analyses of various transport methods - including walking and bicycling - that cannot be found elsewhere.’ Richard F. Hirsh, Virginia Tech, USA
