Bill Morris' Motor City is the classic history of Detroit and its automakers, from the dawn of the automotive age to the present. Detailing the growth of Detroit from a sleepy frontier town to the industrial powerhouse of the twentieth century, Morris tells the story of the people and the cars that made the city a symbol of American success.

This sweeping history is filled with unforgettable characters- from Henry Ford and Walter Chrysler to the Kennedy family and Eminem- and dramatic scenes- from the Great Depression to the riots of the 1990s. Morris brings to life a city and a industry that defined an era, and reveals the complex and fascinating story of how one city and one industry changed the world.; 8vo; FSA.
