Ryan (geography, planning and environmental policy. U. College Dublin and Comhar) and Turton (energy economics, Paul Scherrer Institute) consider the effects of the automobile, including its consumption of final energy and role as a source of greenhouse gas emissions, of course, but they take a unique multidisciplinary approach that builds in long-term energy usage, economics and the environment. They take a close look at the empirical elements of new policies as they cover future transport demand and the technology building toward meeting it and methods of sustainable transport technology scenario analysis. They analyze specific policies, including those intended to reduce greenhouse gasses, those that work on the demand side in market-based instruments, voluntary or negotiated agreements, and supply-side policy measures. They close by presenting a roadmap to sustainable transport systems. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
