General Motors is a companion title to the similar photographic histories on Ford and Chrysler, also published in the "Images of Motoring" series. These little photographic histories are 127 pages long, with every page filled with archival black and white photos. General Motors was such an economic and industrial juggernaut that a book like this couldn't begin to do more than just give the most superficial look at its history. GM built cars, trucks, buses, trains, ships, airplanes, earth moving equipment, home appliances, and millions of kinds of parts in factories on 6 continents. The photos that appear here are interesting and the captions informative. People wishing an in depth history of GM should look elsewhere but the generalist auto fan will find a lof of interest in the photos contained in this little volume. It's a worthwhile book at a very reasonable, affordable price. I enjoyed it along with its companion volumes on Chrysler and Ford.

I purchased this as a gift for my father, a MG owner and enthusiast. He enjoyed this book, especially learning how things have changed.

A very well written book, with extensive history. But a lot has happened since 1999.

A nice overview of the corporation. I especially enjoyed some of the
photos of Flint area scenes.
