Combining theory with empirical case studies, this book breaks new ground in the field by critically engaging with an understanding of the different perspectives and subjectivities associated with transport systems and urban development projects. Incorporating the diverse wider societal and political contexts, various approaches to discourse analysis are examined, including content analysis, critical discourse analysis and Q methodology. Examining the narratives in transport and urban development, chapters study car advertising, highway reconstruction, public transport, bus provision, transit-orientated development and financialisation, walking and cycling networks, and emerging new technologies. Ultimately, the book argues that mainstream views and processes must be confronted in order to respond to contemporary public policy challenges, and makes a convincing case for the wider use of discourse analysis in transport and urban development research, planning and implementation.
Global in scope, this cutting-edge book will prove vital reading for students and scholars of transport planning and urban development. Its practical guidance will be useful to transport and development policymakers and practitioners working in urban and regional authorities, consultancies and civil society.
