Told with panoramic detail and gripping insight, The Reckoning is the inside story of automakers Ford and Nissanand the collapse of America's industrial supremacy After generations of creating high-quality automotive products, American industrialists began losing ground to the Japanese auto industry in the decades after World War II.
