About the Authors
As well as being a car-nut or petrol-head, I have been interested in what I call sustainable automobility for about 25 years. My first publication in this field was The Green Car Guide, a paperback written with a couple of colleagues from my management consultancy days and published in 1992. In subsequent publications I have always been keen to balance the academic with wider public dissemination and the latter in particular – expressed through a number of books – has led to regular invitations to speak at industry conferences, invitations to provide expert comment to the media and invitations to brief governments – including those of China, Australia and the UK – as well as international bodies such as the European Commission, OECD, UNEP, UNIDO, etc. Much of this work was done under the banner of our Centre for Automotive Industry Research, one of the few social-science based university research centres worldwide with this particular sector focus.
Dr Daniel Newman
Dan Newman is a Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University’s School of Law and Politics and his research focusses on access to justice. Projects have included the impact of austerity on the advice sector, exploring how criminal legal aid cuts affect the lawyer-client relationship under criminal legal aid and considering how rural areas are damaged by reduced spending on justice. Earlier work included his review of grassroots based electric vehicle sharing schemes in rural Wales, as part of the EU Interreg ENEVATE project. He has published in a range of journals and has written and edited four books, including this one.
Dr Anne Touboulic
Anne Touboulic is Associate Professor in Operations Management at Nottingham University Business School. Her background is interdisciplinary and her research is cross-boundary in that it lies at the intersection of sustainable development, organisational and critical theory and supply chain management. Currently, her primary focus is on the transition to sustainable food systems. She prefers engaged approaches to research, which enable collaboration with stakeholders, aimed at changing practice. She is Associate Editor of the Journal of Purchasing and Supply Management and a member of the executive committee of the EurOMA Forum on Sustainable Operations and Supply Chains. Although she has a number of academic journal articles to her name, this is her first book.
