The impact of new technology, particularly micro-electronics and computers, is profoundly changing the structure of transport and communication networks within Europe and how they function. This authoritative survey presents a broad yet detailed picture of the main trends and patterns arising from this transformation, particularly the convergence of the previously separate realms of telecommunications and transport. A principal theme of the book is the spatial organization of mobility in relation to technological change which is a matter of critical concern to European development and integration. The editor and contributors, by bringing together the insights of economic analysis, policy studies and technological transformation within the spatial perspective of geography, have attempted to produce an informed and relevant treatment of this topic that will be valued by academic researchers and policy-makers alike.
