The Department of Geography invites you to the Dorn C. McGrath Lecture in Urban Planning and Geography, with guest Peter Newman. Cities are reducing in car use, reversing their sprawl and becoming more aware of their need to reduce automobile dependence to enable their economies to work better. In The End of Automobile Dependence Peter Newman will trace this historic change over the past decades and in different parts of the world before showing how best practice examples can indicate how we need to proceed.
