This definitive history of the Ford Motor Company is heavy on labor relations and short on automotive technology. Still, those who loathe unions would do well to learn about the brutal conditions that once existed in American auto plants.

Allan Nevins was an American historian and journalist, renowned for his extensive work on the history of the Civil War and his biographies of such figures as President Grover Cleveland, Hamilton Fish, Henry Ford, and John D. Rockefeller.More about Allan Nevins...
