Reviews

"The revised edition to Mobility offers a clear and thorough introduction to the field of mobility studies. This indispensable overview takes readers on an expertly guided tour through the key concepts and crucial topics of study that have defined this vibrant field. Adey brings into conversation a wide range of historical and contemporary theorists from many disciplines and draws on a rich array of illustrative examples. Whether exploring the politics of mobility, urban infrastructures, borders and citizenship, mobile media or cultural meanings, he opens our eyes to the significance of differential mobility in shaping every aspect of life today."

Professor Mimi Sheller, Department of Sociology, Director at Center for Mobilities Research and Policy, Drexel University, USA

"Meticulously researched and updated to showcase the leading edge of contemporary mobilities scholarship, Mobility is truly a field-defining book. At a time when understanding the complexities of why and how things move or stay where they are is more vital than ever before, this book remains one of the most compelling travel guides to navigate this exciting, rapidly expanding field."

Dr David Bissell, School of Sociology, The Australian National University, Australia

"Mobility is a fantastic travel guide for anyone analyzing contemporary life. Peter Adey has a special talent for enabling a simultaneously philosophical and empirical appreciation of mobility that showcases how the study of im|mobilities can be richly productive of insight. As he embarks on a wide-ranging exploration of the movement of `little' things like bacteria or CO2, and `big' data, business and power, he connects tourism with offshoring, migration with securitization, elite mobilities with extraordinary rendition, everyday life, and the ideological and infrastructural moorings that differentially enable or constrain mobilities. An extremely useful book."

Professor Monika Buscher, Director Centre for Mobilities Research, Associate Director for the Institute for Social Futures, Department of Sociology, Lancaster University, UK

"Peter Adey's Mobility has been the go-to reference work for students and researchers in our field. In this expanded second edition he continues to track the growing reach and consolidation of mobilities scholarship around the globe. Adey achieves what most of us can only aspire to. He manages to map the wealth of research this broad theoretical perspective has inspired, while maintaining a sense of the dynamism that has enabled the field to move on and surprise us. Mobility is a must-read for everyone interested in contemporary thinking in the Humanities and Social Sciences."

Associate Professor Georgine Clarsen, School of History and Social Inquiry, The University of Wollongong, Australia
