The AutomobileBook - 2005
The Automobile traces the evolution of one of the most influential inventions of our time. This volume explains the scientific processes that propelled each stage in the development of the "horseless carriage" and what changes those early versions of the car brought to our culture. As readers follow Henry Ford's great promise to bring affordable cars to everyone, they will learn how the revolutionary techniques of mass production changed modern society and led to the proliferation of the automobile, the automotive industry, and the vast system of roads and highways on which we depend. The Automobile also examines the ways transportation has affected safety and manufacturing laws and brings the reader into the present by discussing the energy crisis and what innovations are being made to automobiles today.
