Why We Drive
The Past, Present, and Future of Automobiles in AmericaBook - 2013
Taking the position that America's love affair with cars and highways is not a cultural phenomena but an problem that is entrenched in economic and political forces, this manifesto chronicles the rise of the U.S. highway system, its very orchestrated genesis, and the alarming increase in reliance on automobiles. With a format that incorporates a blend of cartoons, historic photographs, and minimal text, this handbook reveals the players-among them crooked politicians, unscrupulous businessmen, and convoluted tax shenanigans-corruption.
