Book: Stealing Cars

Technology and Society from the Model T to the Gran Torino


Heitmann and Morales are absolutely correct-the history of stealing cars is a theme almost absent from historical works, including works that deal specifically with the automobile in America. This book is an important addition to the literature, and I am impressed by how many sides of the subject the authors examine and by the range of historical materials they have researched and cited.
