The 1930’s and 1940’s mark the beginning of the age of the motorcar. During these two decades, the horseless carriage became a practical means of everyday transport, while advanced production completed the process of the car’s transformation from a plaything of the wealthy to a consumer item taken for granted by millions of wage earners.

The author examines the motor industry in each of the major manufacturing countries and takes a look at automobile advertising – contrasting the colourful claims of manufacturers with the actual car – and specialist machines such as sports cars and four-wheel drive vehicles.

Hardback in excellent condition throughout.
