Cultures of Transport: Representation, Practice and Technology
It is argue that the so-called culturalâ€˜ (and spatialâ€˜) turn that has remodelled so many other areas of the humanities and social sciences over the last two decades might help answer Armstrongâ€˜s plea for an innovative, even controversial, transport history. Such a strategy would not merely bring the discipline into line conceptually and methodologically with what has long been going on elsewhere. By focussing on the practical limits and historical capabilities of transport technologies, the renewed historiography would have something of relevance and value to say to these other fields.
