The automobile is one of the most important and influential innovations ever developed, and while it's given its rightful place in Motoring: The Highway Experience in America, the author's real focus for this book is the U.S. interstate highway system and the roads from which it sprang. In Motoring, John A. Jakle and Keith A. Sculle spend over 225 pages delving deeply into significance of the highway system as social idealogy, economic powerhouse, and builder of empire — and it does it by seeing it through the eyes of the most important element, the motorist. Fascinating and relatable, it takes a monumental subject and guides the reader from the infancy of the car, through to the vast network of highways that are now the life blood of the United States.
