Through an in-depth examination of the integral nature of social
networks and walking this book draws conclusions about social
processes of exclusion, identity and the making of community. Much
work on social networks and mobilities focuses on the 'death of
distance' and the globalisation of social networks and the obvious
interaction with mobilities. This book looks at community networks
and contributes to the body of work understanding the interaction
of the global and local scales in social networks. This timely
contribution focuses on the relatively neglected area of
routinised, everyday walking at a time when policy makers and
practitioners struggle to make walking more attractive. In addition
it leads the way in understanding the impacts on transport
provision and daily life of the rapidly evolving Web2.0
technologies for assisting walking. The findings are placed in a
practical policy context to provide practitioners with indications
of tools and techniques for use in generating evidence on, and
assessing processes of exclusion and inclusion. The academic
contribution of this volume is to take the micro social spatial and
temporal practices of everyday life and provide an analysis that
links those to the macro social changes such as globalisation or
technological revolution and social processes of exclusion and
