Summary "Previous work in this area has often been criticized for not being able to establish whether a causal relationship exist between urban structure and travel behaviour. In this book, Petter Naess uses new research from Denmark on residential location and travel to show how and why urban spatial structures affect people's travel behaviour."--BOOK JACKET.
