Kaleb Stonacek The book A Nation on Wheels, written by, Mark S. Foster, covers all cultural aspects of life influenced by the automobile and the evolution of the auto industry in America. Overall the book was very informative and well written, however as a book used for academia I found it somewhat lacking in sources because of its format. The lack of a footnote or endnote system is very frustrating. Throughout this book there are many topics presented including: politics, American culture, economics, car types and styles, individualism, mass transportation, and the environmental impact of the automobile. Mr. Foster is for the most part unbiased on these topics. The author’s thesis seems to revolve around the idea that America was ready for the automobile before its invention. And more importantly the American population was not tricked into the automobile by political and business objectives but welcomed the freedom of the car with open arms.
