Summary: This addition to the ICE Textbook series explores the transport of people, goods and information throughout history and considers how transport can meet the needs of the future. Covering rail, air, road and water, it examines the idea that transport needs are based on the concept of supply and demand and that modes of transport must, therefore, have a "life-cycle". This book also explores the economics of transport and the importance of considering price, convenience and safety of new and existing modes of transport, as well as the impact that the recession has had on preferred modes of transport, e.g. an increase in people cycling instead of driving, using the internet to communicate instead of travelling overseas.
