'This volume contains a set of readings which cover the main themes of efficiency, regulation, land use and regional development. This selection provides the concepts, theory, methodology and applications in some of the main fields of transport economics. The introduction to the collection gives an excellent overview of new developments as well as to the readings themselves. This book contains a selection of recent contributions and it shows the vitality of transport economics and the interplay between theory and empirical work. This is an excellent handbook for economic researchers and for postgraduate courses in transport economics.'--Ginés de Rus, University of Las Palmas de G.C. and University Carlos III de Madrid, Spain. This comprehensive two-volume collection provides a selection of key writings on the economics of transport published since 1990. Topics covered include transport, economic activity and the spatial economy; demand and activity-based approaches; costs, scale and scope; external costs, efficiency and the wider impacts of transport; and competition and regulation. Along with a new and original introduction, the editor has brought together 59 seminal papers which demonstrate a continuing vitality in transport economics research. This set of papers will be a valuable aid to all involved in transport research and provide encouragement to advanced students of the many unresolved issues needing further study
