Description - A New Deal for Transport? by Iain Docherty

Comprising contributions from a range of experts, this book offers a critical commentary on the Blair government's sustainable transport policy and its implementation. The volume is divided into three sections. The first section reviews links between sustainability and transport policy, and examines the political realities surrounding the delivery of a sustainable transport agenda. The second focuses on progress in policy implementation, evaluating the extent to which Labour's own policy goals have been achieved. The final section looks at the likely trajectory of sustainable transport policy in the UK until 2010. The book includes a Foreword by David Begg, Chair of the Commission for Integrated Transport. Firmly rooted within an appreciation of the politics of transport, this book will make a valuable contribution to debates about future policy.
