On the Move - Mobility in the Modern Western World
On the Move - Mobility in the Modern Western World
Cresswell, Tim
On the Move presents a rich history of one of the key concepts of modern life: mobility. As Tim Cresswell shows, while mobility has greatly increased in modern times, attempts to control and restrict it are just as characteristic of modernity. On the Move utilizes an impressive variety of angles to explore the increasing social and physical mobility of people over the past 150 years as well as efforts to restrict it: international migration, stop-motion photography, automobile culture, the time-motion studies of Frederick Winslow Taylor, the Los Angeles bus riders' strike of the late 1990s, the new mobilities fostered by European Union integration, and the plight of New Orleans residents unable to move when Hurricane Katrina struck.
