This  book investigates how practices of community carsharing are influencing  everyday mobility. It argues that hegemonic practices of automobility  are reconfigured through practices of community carsharing, thereby  challenging capitalist mobilities in the realm of everyday life. 

Through  a detailed empirical study of practices of community carsharing and its  practitioners in the rural regions around Munich, Germany, this book  reveals how the practice contributes to the emergence of alternative  automobile practices, meanings, identities and subjectivities. It also  explores the embedding of automobility into its ecological context, the  connection of function and community in practices of community  carsharing and the changing of ownership relations through a process of  commoning mobility. This reconfiguration of everyday practices of  automobility takes place through processes of everyday resistance,  re-embedding and commoning, and ultimately results in the emergence of  an alternative mobility culture, thereby facilitating the dissemination  of an alternative common sense of community carsharing. 

This  book on community carsharing provides a valuable insight into  carsharing in rural settings and exemplifies how carsharing  specifically, and sharing mobilities in general, can contribute to a  social–ecological mobility transition. The work will be of particular  interest to scholars and practitioners working in mobility studies and  mobilities.
