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.

Triumph Sports Cars

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95657784&cjsku=95657784...
In the 1950s and 1960s, British sports car ruled the road, and their charge was led by Triumphs. From the TR2, its first modern sports car, Triumph went on to produce a host of classic sports designs such as the Spitfire, GT, and Stag, as well as more TR models, ending with the TR7 in the late 1970s. These represented the epitome of the contemporary classic British sports car. Fast, nimble, and gorgeous to behold, Triumphs offered the everyday motorist an exhilarating drive at a price that they could afford. Popular both in the UK and the US, the Triumph range helped define the entire genre, with sports cars today like the Mazda MX-5 having their roots in models like the Stag. Illustrated throughout and written by acclaimed motoring writer and historian Graham Robson, this book guides the reader through the history of this classic British marque from its heyday in the 1960s and 1970s through to its eventual demise in the 1980s.

Understanding Chemistry through Cars

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1686803&cjsku=1686803...
As the car anticipates its dance around the racetrack, the engine growls and pops, and all senses become immersed in the smell of exhaust vapors and the sounds of raw speed and excitement. As it turns out, these also are the sights, sounds, and smells of chemistry! The car is a great example of an everyday device with an abundance of chemistry hiding in plain sight. In fact, almost everything in a car can be described from a chemical perspective. Understanding Chemistry through Cars guides novice chemists and car enthusiasts in learning basic chemical principles in an engaging context. It also supports upper-level chemists in synthesizing knowledge gained over a chemistry curriculum and seeing how it can manifest in the real world. This book provides an overview of chemistry in relation to cars. Various topics are discussed including the ideal gas law, materials chemistry, thermochemistry, solution chemistry, mass transport, polymerization, light/matter interactions, and oxidation and reduction. The book incorporates expected learning outcomes at the beginning of each section, detailed and easy-to-follow example problems, appendices reviewing basic chemical topics, suggestions on how to use the resource in upper-level courses. Ancillary materials, such as a Twitter account and an associated blog, allow readers to explore the latest in the world of car chemistry, ask questions, and interact directly with the authors and other experts.

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.
