The Routledge Companion to Automobile Heritage, Culture, and Preservation explores automotive heritage, its place in society, and the ways we might preserve and conserve it. Drawing on contributions from academics and practitioners around the world and comprising six sections, this volume carries the heritage discourse forward by exploring the complex and sometimes intricate place of automobiles within society. Taken as a whole, this book helps to shape how we think about automobile heritage and considers how that heritage explores a range of cultural, intellectual, emotional, and material elements well outside of the automobile body itself. Most importantly, perhaps, it questions how we might better acknowledge the importance of automotive heritage now and in the future. The Routledge Companion to Automobile Heritage, Culture, and Preservation is unique in that it juxtaposes theory with practice, academic approaches with practical experience, and recognizes that issues of preservation and conservation belong in a broad context. As such, this volume should be essential reading for both academics and practitioners with an interest in automobiles, cultural heritage, and preservation.

Throughout the 1970s, the Essendon Football Club was at its lowest ebb. The Bombers made just three finals appearances that decade - a huge shock to the system for a club accustomed to regular success. That all changed when Kevin Sheedy walked through the doors of Windy Hill in 1981. Glory and Fame: The Rise and Rise of The Essendon Football Club focuses on Essendon's resurgence from its lowest ebb to become a football superpower. In a series of essays, complemented by strong photography, some of Australia's leading football writers, including Rohan Connolly, Scott Gullan, Emma Quayle, Glenn McFarlane and John Harms, retrace the key moments in the Bombers' renaissance and look at the key people who helped transform the club - on and off the field. Glory and Fame: The Rise and Rise of The Essendon Football Club features in-depth interviews with Kevin Sheedy, James Hird, Tim Watson, Peter Jackson, Terry Daniher, Simon Madden, Michael Long and many others who have been pivotal to the Bombers' success over the past quarter of a century. Plus there is a comprehensive review of each of the Bombers' last four Grand Final triumphs (the drought-breaker of 1984, back-to-back success of 1985, the Baby Bombers of 1993, and the redemption of 2000). Glory and Fame: The Rise and Rise of The Essendon Football Club gives a wonderful insight into how to achieve sporting success and is essential reading for Essendon supporters and all sports fans.

The epic story also told in the film FORD V. FERRARI: By the early 1960s, the Ford Motor Company, built to bring automobile transportation to the masses, was falling behind. Young Henry Ford II, who had taken the reins of his grandfather’s company with little business experience to speak of, knew he had to do something to shake things up. Baby boomers were taking to the road in droves, looking for speed not safety, style not comfort. Meanwhile, Enzo Ferrari, whose cars epitomized style, lorded it over the European racing scene. He crafted beautiful sports cars, "science fiction on wheels," but was also called "the Assassin" because so many drivers perished while racing them.Go Like Hell tells the remarkable story of how Henry Ford II, with the help of a young visionary named Lee Iacocca and a former racing champion turned engineer, Carroll Shelby, concocted a scheme to reinvent the Ford company. They would enter the high-stakes world of European car racing, where an adventurous few threw safety and sanity to the wind. They would design, build, and race a car that could beat Ferrari at his own game at the most prestigious and brutal race in the world, something no American car had ever done. Go Like Hell transports readers to a risk-filled, glorious time in this brilliant portrait of a rivalry between two industrialists, the cars they built, and the "pilots" who would drive them to victory, or doom.

Probably for the first time, criticism is leveled at both Louis Stanley, and the introduction of the H16 engine as contributory factors to the failure of British Racing Motors. Louis Stanley for his freeloading extravagance, and the rather foolish decision by the management to specify such a complicated and bulky power unit.

This book describes Juan-Manuel Fangio's youth in Buenos Aires, his first steps in motor racing in Argentina, and then his move to Europe where he scooped all Formula One honors. Like Fangio himself, this illustrated biography also delivers comprehensive results, featuring several hundred photographs and car drawings. Until last year, Juan-Manual Fangio was the sole owner of the Formula One World Titles record, winning it a remarkable five times (a record only just now equaled by Michael Schumacher). His unique style is much admired by Schumacher himself, who admits that drivers of the past were in another world.
