The American Auto: Over 100 Years chronicles the evolution of the automobile from its infancy to the sophisticated vehicles we desire and drive today.
Logging more than 700 pages, The American Auto: Over 100 Years features photos on every page, plus insightful, expert commentary. Timelines and annual sales figures add to the book s lively mix.
Read about:
Henry Ford, the towering figure in U.S. auto history, who pioneered affordable, dependable transportation made on another of his inventions, the assembly line.
Alfred Sloan, who staged an automobile revolution in 1921, sketching the blueprint for General Motors.
Every major epoch in U.S. automotive history, including the bruising, competitive decade of the 1930s, Detroit in wartime, the postwar seller s market, small cars, muscle cars, the government interventions of the 1970s, and the constant redefinition of the auto industry in the 21st century, including the still-controversial bailouts.

The American Auto: Over 100 Years illustrates major names and model in American automotive history and details important trends, success and failure of an industry that helped define a nation and influenced the history of manufacturing, design, and commerce the world over. For car-lovers, historians, and students of design, The American Auto: Over 100 Years is an indispensable chronicle.
