U of M researchers contribute to new transport handbook

Photo of book coverTwo U of M researchers contributed a chapter in the Handbook of Transport and Development, a new book from Edward Elgar Publishing.

Professor David Levinson, RP Braun/CTS Chair in the U of M’s Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering (CEGE), and Michael Iacono, a former CEGE research fellow, coauthored “Methods for Estimating the Economic Impacts of Transportation Improvements: An Interpretive Review.” Their chapter is one of 45 from leading international authors.

The book is organized in three main parts: urban structure and travel, transport and spatial impacts, and wider dimensions in transport and development. The chapters each present commentary on key issues within these themes, presenting the debate on the impacts of urban structure on travel, the impacts of transport investment on development, and social and cultural change on travel.

The handbook will serve as a guide for undergraduates and graduate students, researchers, and consultants, as well as practitioners and policymakers wishing to find a comprehensive and original reference to research on transport and development.

Details and ordering information are the Edward Elgar website. The book is also available for preorder at Amazon.com.
