Product Description

About the Author

Michael W.R. Davis, Yale alumnus and automotive historian, has covered the industry for 45 years as both journalist and public relations manager with the Ford Motor Company. Living in Detroit he experienced firsthand the small-town, one-industry bond, where the successes and failures of one could not help but affect the other. Mr. Davis served as corporate communications director of both the Detroit News and Evening News Association before becoming executive director of the Detroit Historical Society. General Motors: A Photographic History is to be the first in a series of three books with Arcadia Publishing documenting the rise, fall and survival of the three great American automobile manufacturers of our day.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
