Sample text

Without the voluntary support of hundreds of people in countless agencies and institutions around the world, this work could never have been completed. To all these people who provided data we extend our sincere thanks and hope that we have adequately acknowledged all their help both in the text and in Appendix 2 of the book. The authors remain responsible for the way these data have been used. A large amount of the formal work on this book was carried out on the principal author's sabbatical from Murdoch University undertaken at the University of Colorado in the Faculty of Architecture and Planning.

It only remains to put the information to maximum use and that is a task for all of us. PROFESSOR JOHN WHITELEGG SCHOOL OF THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT LIVERPOOL JOHN MOORES UNIVERSITY CLARENCE ST LIVERPOOL L3 5UG UK EDITOR "WORLD TRANSPORT POLICY AND PRACTICE" Page xv Acknowledgments The research that lies behind this work has taken some seven years to complete. Along the way there have been many people who have contributed in different ways to its completion. In the early 1990s we were faced with the daunting prospect of not only beginning to update the data for the original thirty-two cities in Cities and Automobile Dependence: An International Sourcebook, but also to significantly expand the number of cities.

These data are presently being collected for Beijing, along with a number of other Chinese cities, as part of a doctoral thesis in preparation at Murdoch University through 1998/99. 1 below sets out the metropolitan regions covered by this book and distinguishes those cities which are new to the study and also those 37 cities for which the additional data base of economic and environmental data have been provided. It should be noted at this point that when we refer to "cities" in this book we are, except where otherwise noted in Chapter 2, referring to whole metropolitan regions, and not just, for example, the "cities" lying at the heart of US urban regions, such as the "City of Detroit'' or the "City of San Francisco".
