The Estate We're In
By Nicola Baird
An overview of car culture, addressing questions such as: what is Carhenge? Is the A13 Britain's Route 66? And why are we addicted to fast cars?Whether you are passionate about classic cars, suffer from road rage, know a boy racer or protested against the Newbury bypass, this book is for you. Focusing on the driving forces behind car culture - freedom, speed and the political clout of the motor lobby - it asks the million dollar question: if driving is so much fun, why do we hate every other driver on the road?
