Two Billion Cars

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=416014&cjsku=416014...
At present, there are roughly a billion cars in the world. Yet within twenty years, the number will increase to 2 billion, a consequence of China and India's explosive growth. Given that greenhouse gases are already creating havoc with our climate, does this mean that matters will only get worse? Detroit, the federal government, and-not least-American consumers have all contributed to the current crisis. Through a concise history of America's love affair with cars and an overview of the global auto industry, Daniel Sperling, one of the nation's leading transportation experts, and Deborah Gordon explain how we arrived at this state, and what we can do about it. Most provocatively, the authors contend that the two places that are the most troublesome with regard to emissions--California and China--are the most likely to become world leaders on these issues. Arnold Schwarzenegger's improbable embrace of eco-friendly fuel policies and China's forthright recognition that it needs to address its rampant pollution with a far-reaching emissions policy suggest that if they can tackle the issue effectively and honestly, then there really is reason for hope.

American Cars, 1946-1959

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1594722&cjsku=1594722...
From the resumption of automobile production at the close of World War II through the 1950s, the American auto industry would see the births and deaths of several manufacturers, great technological advances, and an era of dramatic styling as a prospering nation asserted its growing mobility. Cars of this period are among the most iconic vehicles ever built in the United States: the 1949 Ford, the remarkable Studebaker designs of 1950 and 1953, the 1955-1957 Chevrolets, the "Forward Look" Chrysler products, the ill-fated Edsel and many others. This comprehensive reference book details every model from each of the major manufacturers (including independents such as Kaiser-Frazer and Crosley but excluding very low-volume marques such as Tucker) from model years 1946 through 1959. Year by year, it provides an overview of the industry and market, followed by an individual report on each company: its main news for the year (introductions or cancellations of models, new engines and transmissions, advertising themes, sales trends etc.); its production figures and market status; and its powertrain offerings, paint colors and major options. The company's models are then detailed individually with such information as body styles, prices, dimensions and weights, standard equipment and production figures. Nearly 1,000 photographs are included.
