Description The End of Automobile Dependence de Peter Newman:

This book offers new guidance for urban and transportation planners and urban policy makers on how to accelerate development of cities away from automobile dependence. In The End of Automobile Dependence, Newman and Kenworthy look at how we can accelerate a planning approach to designing urban environments that can function reliably and conveniently on alternative modes, with a refined and more civilized automobile playing a very much reduced and manageable role in urban transportation. The authors examine the rise and fall of automobile dependence using updated data on 44 global cities to better understand how to facilitate and guide cities to the most productive and sustainable outcomes. This is the final volume in a trilogy by Newman and Kenworthy on automobile dependence (Cities and Automobile Dependence in 1989 and Sustainability and Cities: Overcoming Automobile Dependence in 1999). Like all good trilogies, this one shows the rise of an empire, in this case that of the automobile, the peak of its power, and the decline of that empire. Peter Newman is Professor of Sustainability at the Curtin University Sustainability Institute (CUSP). He is a Lead Author for Transport on the IPCC and was awarded an Order of Australia for his contributions to urban design and sustainable transport. Jeffrey Kenworthy is Professor in Sustainable Cities in CUSP at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia and Guest Professor at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences in Germany.
