Transport and mobility history is one of the most exciting areas of historical research at the present. As its scope expands,
it entices scholars working in fields as diverse as historical geography, management studies, sociology, industrial archaeology,
cultural and literary studies, ethnography, and anthropology, as well as those working in various strands of historical research.
Containing contributions exploring transport and mobility history after 1800, this volume of eclectic chapters shows how new
subjects are explored, new sources are being encountered, considered and used, and how increasingly diverse and innovative
methodological lenses are applied to both new and well-travelled subjects. From canals to Concorde, from freight to passengers,
from screen to literature, the contents of this book will therefore not only demonstrate the cutting edge of research, and
deliver valuable new insights into the role and position of transport and mobility in history, but it will also evidence the
many and varied directions and possibilities that exist for the field's future development.
