A world without cars would be unrecognizable. They have altered the shape of our cities, nations and landscapes, revolutionized the way we make and sell things, and profoundly influenced our relationship with speed itself.

Cars: Accelerating the Modern World presents the car as a driving force that increased the pace of the twentieth century. From the legacy of mass production on the first moving assembly line at the Ford Motor Company and the introduction of the annual model by General Motors in the 1920s, to the renewed interest in electric cars after the energy crises of the 1970s and the more recent move towards autonomous vehicles, this is an in-depth look at the history of the automobile and its impact on the designed world.
