This collection of edited papers, first published in 1990, has two broad sets of objectives. The first relates to transport in the wider context of New Right governments and a policy agenda for state activity which clearly reflects a shifting relationship between public and private sectors. The second focuses on transport per se and to provide evidence of the contexts, policies and practical outcomes of deregulatory measures.
