This is a well-structured textbook for transportation geography. It effectively covers almost all geographical aspects of transportation systems. For each chapter, the concept-method organization is very useful for students to understand the theoretical aspects of transportation and how these theories can be applied in practice. The contents covered in this book are highly relevant to current research and practice. Dr. Changshan Wu, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, USA
This textbook, written by three well-known transport geographers, is a good example of the vitality and vibrancy of contemporary work in transport geography, especially in terms of its relevance to directly related subfields such as economic geography.
