Driving modernity : technology, experts, politics, and fascist motorways, 1922-1943 by Massimo Moraglio( )

12 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On March 26th, 1923, in a formal ceremony, construction of the Milan?Alpine Lakes autostrada officially began, the preliminary step toward what would become the first European motorway. That Benito Mussolini himself participated in the festivities indicates just how important the project was to Italian Fascism. This book recounts the twisting fortunes of the autostrada, which?alongside railways, aviation, and other forms of mobility?Italian authorities hoped would spread an ideology of technological nationalism. It explains how Italy ultimately failed to realize its mammoth infrastructural vision, addressing the political and social conditions that made a coherent plan of development impossible
Peripheral flows : a historical perspective on mobilities between cores and fringes by Simone Fari( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main purpose of the eleven contributions to this volume is to reconsider and re-assess the role of cores and peripheries in shaping modern socio-technical systems. From this perspective they explore a terrain of highly complex systems mainly operating on the so-called Western model: Railways, telegraphs, motor vehicles and airports were, in fact, all born in classic cores areas in the West and then spread out into the peripheries. The approach in itself is not new, but this volume has managed to bring out interestingly innovative elements and viewpoints. The contributors are not content with the traditional definitions of peripheries and flows, but tend to put them to the test, revise them and eventually offer critiques. The result is a tempering of the monolithic and traditional concept of a one-way transfer. No longer, therefore, a simple and linear act of adoption, but a recourse to adaptation - changes in meaning, use and perception. The volume is a starting point for future explorations on the subject of science and technology studies and takes part in a wider discussion of globalisation, global and transnational history.--
Re-thinking mobility poverty : understanding users' geographies, backgrounds and aptitudes by Tobias Kuttler( )

7 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book seeks to better conceptualise and define mobility poverty, addressing both its geographies and socio-economic landscapes. It moves beyond the analysis of transport poverty' and innovatively explores mobility inequalities and social construction of mobility disadvantages. The debate on mobility poverty is gaining momentum due to its role in triggering social exclusion and economic deprivation. In this light, this book examines the social construction of mobility poverty by delving into mobility patterns and needs as they are differently experienced by social groups in different geographical situations. It considers factors such as the role of transport regimes and their social value when analysing the social construction of individuals mobility needs. Furthermore, the gaps between articulated and unarticulated needs are identified by observing actual travel patterns of individuals. The book offers a comparison of the global phenomenon through fieldwork conducted in six different European countries - Greece, Portugal, Italy, Luxembourg, Romania and Germany. This book will be useful reading for planners, sociologists, geographers, mobility/transport researchers, mobility advocates, policy-makers and transport practitioners.

The organization of transport : a history of users, industry, and public policy by Massimo Moraglio( )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past ten years, the study of mobility has demonstrated groundbreaking approaches and new research patterns. These investigations criticize the concept of mobility itself, suggesting the need to merge transport and communication research, and to approach the topic with novel instruments and new methodologies. Following the debates on the role of users in shaping transport technology, new mobility research includes debates from sociology, planning, economy, geography, history, and anthropology. This edited volume examines how users, policy-makers, and industrial managers have organized and continue to organize mobility, with a particularly attention to Europe, North America, and Asia. Taking a long-term and comparative perspective, the volume brings together thirteen chapters from the fields of urban studies, history, cultural studies, and geography. Covering a variety of countries and regions, these chapters investigate how various actors have shaped transport systems, creating models of mobility that differ along a number of dimensions, including public vs. private ownership and operation as well as individual vs. collective forms of transportation. The contributions also examine the extent to which initial models have created path dependencies in terms of technology, physical infrastructure, urban development, and cultural and behavioral preferences that limit subsequent choices"--

Les transports de la démocratie : approche historique des enjeux politiques de la mobilité by Mathieu Flonneau( )

1 edition published in 2019 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mobilité et démocratie forment en apparence un couple historique idéal. Union de deux idéaux en tout cas, dont Les transports de la démocratie éclairent les destinées variées et les affinités tumultueuses. S'ils semblent indissociables, ces deux idéaux se posent mutuellement des problèmes en pratique. La reconfiguration au cours du temps des liens qui les unissent et parfois les entravent dans un environnement changeant : tel est le sujet de ce volume. Écrit depuis plusieurs perspectives disciplinaires (histoire, science politique, géographie et économie), ce livre est centré d'une part sur la France, tout en offrant des points de comparaison avec d'autres espaces politiques, et d'autre part sur le second XXe siècle, tout en s'autorisant des échappées vers les périodes antérieures. Démocratie technique, écosystèmes de mobilité et équation des déplacements : ces opérateurs de la pensée sur les mobilités durables y gagnent en profondeur et s'en trouvent décapés. Avec ce recueil, l'histoire décloisonnée de la mobilité et des transports témoigne de sa maturité
