Wonderful news that the second edition of Mobility by Peter Adey (my fantastic supervisor) has just been published.
My approach to studying running has been informed predominantly by the perspectives of mobility studies (it was certainly my ‘in’ to it anyway) and the first edition has been the go-to textbook for those across the social sciences/humanities studying mobility and its phenomena/issues.
This second edition has been greatly updated, responding to the vast developments within the field of mobilities and it has been a massive undertaking for Pete to revise, which the reviews/endorsements suggest he’s done in his usual engaging, expert, sympathetic and brilliant way. I have also had the pleasure of engaging with many of the ideas and examples used in the book while co-teaching a module on Mobilities with Pete at RHUL.
It will be a joy to read this and to teach future mobility scholars using this second edition, not at least because it is so blooming good-looking.
Mobility (2nd Edition) by Peter Adey is available from all the usual places but it is currently cheapest directly from publisher’s website, should you wish you purchase this. It’s already in my shopping basket.
