Summary
"Dr. Steven Parissien examines the impact, development, and significance of the automobile over its ... 130-year history. He tells the story of the automobile, and of its creators, from its earliest appearance in the late nineteenth century, as little more than a powered quadricycle, through the mergers and bailouts of the twenty-first century ... this book illustrates how the epic story of the car mirrors the history of the modern era, from the brave hopes and soaring ambitions of the late eighteen hundreds to the cynicism and ecological concerns we face more than a century later"--Provided by publisher
