Published by SAE InternationalThe Evolution of Automotive Technology: A Handbook covers 125 years of the automobile—conceived as a cultural history of its technology. The book is aimed at engineering students and all those who wish to have a concise introduction into the basics of automotive technology and its long-term development. Author Gijs Mom offers a book that is systemic and includes the behavior of drivers, producers, nonusers, and other stakeholders as well as the discourse around mobility. The 360-page book examines how the history of the automobile has evolved through five distinctive phases: Emergence (1880–1917); Persistence (1917–1940); Exuberance (1945–1973); Doom (1973–2000); and Confusion (2001–present).
