Reviews

'Gendered Mobilities provides the missing gender dimension to the growing literature on mobilities. Its wide perspectives (social, technological and geographical), make this collection a must for a contemporary understanding of mobilities, even beyond its focus on gender.

This excellent volume will become a key text in the emerging mobilities turn.' John Urry, Lancaster University, UK
