In this new authoritative collection The Environment and Transport, the editors have selected the most important articles published in the last twenty years concerning pollution, the effects of traffic on the environment and the development of controls on both a regional and national level.

This important new reference work will prove an invaluable source to both practitioners and students in the field of environmental studies.
‘The volume’s strength lies in the way it draws together a wide variety of articles dealing with different aspects of the environment and transport. This makes it an excellent textbook for those interested in the subject and who find it difficult to locate the journals in which the original papers were published. The reference lists of these papers are an invaluable bibliographic resource.’
– Heather Ward, Journal of Transport Geography

‘This book is of quite an impressive size and, with its broad title The Environment and Transport, may resemble an encyclopaedia or even the Bible! . . . this is a valuable book. It should be read by politicians, economists and planners, who are often fascinated by technical progress in transport. . .’
– Teofil Lijewski, Transport Reviews
