Geographies of Muslim identities : diaspora, gender and belonging by Peter Hopkins( Book )
20 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 334 libraries worldwide
This work is structured in three parts: the first part addresses issues of diaspora, the second part looks at gender issues, and the final part seeks to draw together some of these discussions of diaspora and gender through an exploration of issues of belonging
Transport : critical essays in human geography ( Book )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 102 libraries worldwide
"Mobility, accessibility, networks, and interactions across space are at the heart of how spaces and places are brought into being and continue to change. In a series of articles that chart the development of thinking about space, place, and transport, this book highlights the role that a geographic perspective has played in transport studies, raises questions about transport policy, and points to additional questions worthy of research. The volume is divided into four parts covering fundamental concepts, individual behaviour in urban spatial context, inter-regional transport and policy issues."--Jacket
Geographies of health, disease, and well-being : recent advances in theory and method ( Book )
4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 35 libraries worldwide
"This book is a collection of papers reflecting the latest advances in geographic research on health, disease, and well-being. It spans a wide range of topics, theoretical perspectives, and methodologies - including anti-racism, post-colonialism, spatial statistics, spatiotemporal modeling, political ecology, and social network analysis. Health issues in various regions of the world are addressed by interdisciplinary authors, who include scholars from epidemiology, medicine, public health, demography, and community studies. The book covers the major themes in this field such as health inequalities; environmental health; spatial analysis and modeling of disease; health care provision, access, and utilization; health and wellbeing; and global/transnational health and health issues in the global south. There is also a specially commissioned book review in addition to the chapters included in these six sections. Together, these chapters show cogently how geographic perspectives and methods can contribute in significant ways to advancing our understanding of the complex interactions between social and physical environments and health behaviors and outcomes. This book was published as a special issue of Annals of the Association of American Geographers."
Geographies of mobility : recent advances in theory and method ( Book )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
This book seeks to bring together different philosophical, theoretical, and methodological approaches to the study of human mobility within the discipline of geography. With five thematic sections - conceptualizing and analyzing mobility, inequalities of mobility, politics of mobility, decentering mobility, and qualifying abstraction - and 27 substantive chapters by leading researchers in the field, it provides a comprehensive overview of the latest thinking about human mobility and related issues. The contributors discuss mobility issues as diverse as everyday mobilities of young people, migrants and refugees, and sex workers; the relationships between citizenship and mobility; and the potential and pitfalls of big data for understanding mobility. This, coupled with a broad international focus, means that Geographies of Mobility will not only encourage and enrich dialogue on a theme that is of major importance to varied geographic research communities, but will also be of great interest to students and researchers across the wider social sciences. This book was originally published as a special issue of Annals of the American Association of Geographers

Addressing the social implications of GIS in the technical realm ( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Computational-process modelling of household activity scheduling by Tommy Gärling( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Models of households' travel choices are an important focus of research. For some time, it has been known that such models need to incorporate how travel depends on activity choices. It is argued that production system models constitute an alternative or necessary comple­mentary approach if the goal is to develop models of interdependent activity and travel choices, or activity scheduling, which are based on behavioral science theories of higher cognitive pro­cesses. Several computational-process models (CPMs) which implement production systems as computer programs are reviewed. Currently, no encompassing CPM exists but some may be possible to integrate in a descriptive model of activity scheduling
