The Holden versus Ford debate has been around for as long as the cars themselves. But with the curtain finally falling on local car-making in Australia, the chance to take a sideways look at six decades' worth of competing product from Holden and Ford was just too good an opportunity for motoring journalist Dave Morley to pass up. This book isn't a workshop manual, and it's definitely not a reference source. This is a tongue-in-cheek look back on the cars we drove, and a fond examination of what was so good and evil about them. Along the way, you'll discover stories you haven't heard before, lies debunked and legends cut down to size. Not to mention some genuine what-were-they-thinking moments.

Throughout the evolution of the modern world economy, new models of productive efficiency and business organization have emerged-in Britain in the nineteenth century, in the US in the early (and perhaps late) twentieth century, and in Japan in the 1980s and 1990s. At each point foreignobservers have looked for the secrets of success and best practice, and initiatives have been taken to transmit and diffuse.This book looks in detail at 'Americanization' in Europe and Japan in the post-war period. A group of distinguished international scholars explore in depth the processes, the ideologies, and the adaptations in a number of different countries (the UK, France, Italy, Japan, Sweden, Germany) anddifferent sectors (engineering, telecommunications, motor vehicles, steel, and rubber).The book is rich in historical analysis based on careful research. This provides the basis for informed and subtle theoretical analysis of the complexities of the diffusion of business organization and the powerful influences of Americanization in this century. It will be of compelling interest tohistorians, social scientists and business academics concerned with the dynamics of economic and corporate growth, industrial development, and the diffusion of productive and business models.

Praise for the first edition: 'The Hollywood Story is a must for the movie buff... Never has so much information been compiled into one, easy to read, accessible volume.' Bob Dorian, American Movie Classics 'A book that more than lives up to its claims... For all those unable to store sixty years of Variety under the bed, Mr Finler has performed an invaluable service.

As the state’s only mounted regiment, riding Vermont–bred Morgan horses, the Cavalry unit battled some of the most notable Confederate cavalry commanders, mostly in Virginia. This history explores in detail the battles and leaders of the unit, including generals George Custer and Philip Sheridan.
