'Gendered Mobilities provides the missing gender dimension to the growing literature on mobilities. Its wide perspectives (social, technological and geographical), make this collection a must for a contemporary understanding of mobilities, even beyond its focus on gender. The intriguing discussions presented in various chapters will surely yield additional studies in the future.' Aharon Kellerman, University of Haifa, Israel 'This collection presents a wide-ranging set of papers delineating through novel theories and new research the gendering of mobilities in both "north" and "south". This excellent volume will become a key text in the emerging mobilities turn.' John Urry, Lancaster University, UK
