An evaluation of the impact of Henry Ford and Ford Motor Company on human civilization discusses the successes of early car models and how automobile technology has affected industrial labor relations and America's middle class.

Book News
Brinkley tells the story of the eccentric inventor who built the Ford Motor Company into an empire, and the epic achievements of the company whose cars from the Tin Lizzie and Model A, through the Thunderbird and Mustang became cultural icons. The book also touches on darker aspects of the company, from its founder's anti-Semitism to its unpopular wartime pacifism. Along the way, Brinkley (history, Eisenhower Center for American Studies, U. of New Orleans) introduces a cast of colorful innovators, from the Wright Brothers and Charles Lindbergh to modern-day Ford CEO William Clay Ford Jr. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
