Abstract:

The Pedestrian and the City provides an overview of and insight into the development and politics of, and policies on, walking and pedestrians: it covers the evolution of pedestrian-friendly housing estates and the attempts to create independent pedestrian footpaths from the nineteenth century up to the present day. Key issues addressed are the fight against urban motorways, the destruction of walkable neighbourhoods through road building, the struggle of pedestrianization, and the popularity of traffic calming as a powerful policy for reducing pedestrian accidents.
