The End of Automobile Dependence: How Cities Are Moving Beyond Car-Based Planning

COVER: Paperback
FORMAT: 25.27x17.98cms
PAGES: 320
LANGUAGE: English
PRICE: $129.95

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. They consider 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.
