This theoretically informed research explores what the development and transformation of air travel has meant for societies and individuals.

  • Brings together a number of interdisciplinary approaches towards the aeroplane and its relation to society
  • Presents an original theory that our societies are aerial societies, or ′aerealities′, and shows how we are both enabled and threatened by aerial mobility
  • Features a series of detailed international case studies which map the history of aviation over the past century – from the promises of early flight, to World War II bombing campaigns, and to the rise of international terrorism today
  • Demonstrates the transformational capacity of air transport to shape societies, bodies and individual identities
  • Offers startling historical evidence and bold new ideas about how the social and material spaces of the aeroplane are considered in the modern era

′′Peter Adey is a clear, strong, inventive, unique voice in human geography. In Aerial Life, he brings together a fascinating set of theoretical concerns and empirical cases in his inimitable style, with a gravity of purpose and a lightness of touch that makes for an incredibly rich book.′Mark B. Salter, University of Ottawa
