With this book the international academic discourse on mobility is taken a step further, through the intertwined perspectives of different social sciences, engineering and the humanities. The Ethics of Mobilities builds upon the recent interest in social surveillance, widening the theme to encompass a broad scale of questions, ranging from freedom and escape to social exclusion and control, thus raising important questions of ethics, identity and metaphysics.

'Speedy circulation of commodities, people and ideas transcending barriers of time and space, were hallmarks of modernity. The Ethics of Mobilities, this multi-disciplinary collection, examines tensions arising from the dream and reality of the global "success story". Sharply critical of conventional approaches, it offers more comprehensive perspectives on the subject.'
Anne Buttimer, Past President, International Geographical Union

'To speed up or to slow down? In this fresh, pioneering collection of remarkably accessible essays, the issue of mobilities in many contexts is considered from a range of perspectives, including religious studies and theology. Introducing new questions and methodologies, this "must-read" volume marks an important contribution to the bourgeoning scholarly discussion of mobility.'
Peter M. Scott, The University of Manchester, UK

'...the book is innovative in exploring views of disciplines that only recently have developed an interest in mobility...I would recommend this compilation to scholars and students from humanities, social sciences, and transport engineering interested in empirical and theoretical matters relating to mobility.'

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
