How the Car Changed Life
A non fiction book by

 
 
In a series of explorations both historical and actual, Automobile follows the cars momentous journey as it shapes the twentieth century, and sets the terms for the twenty-first. Starting from the Paris of the first road races, Ruth Brandon travels to Frds Detroit, to the Berlin of Hitlers Volkswagen dream, the Belfast field where John DeLoreans fantasy briefly came to life, ending up in automobile apotheosis: the Los Angeles freeways. Along the way, she pauses to consider the cars effect on urban planning and the environment, politics, gender wars, advertising, design, music, fashion and art.
