The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold

'Bill Bryson on two wheels' Independent Scaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000km route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off at the Arctic winter’s brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively sub-zero desolation of snowbound Finland. Haunted throughout the journey by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream, and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse – at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58-degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older.

Organizational Change in Transition Societies

This book discusses change management paradigms with special reference to examples and cases from the transition societies in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The first chapter analyses developments and trends in the wider societal context of Central and Eastern Europe. Theoretical perspectives are applied to understand the processes of transition and EU accession in Central and Eastern Europe. Following the second and third chapters, the most frequently used tools and procedures of change management are analysed from the perspective of a CEE organization. The special advantage of the text to the potential readership is the integration of 'macro' (societal) and 'micro' (organizational) points of view towards understanding change. The text also provides real-life examples and perspectives of understanding and managing change from Central and Eastern Europe, which helps the reader to grasp the wider political, economic and societal context(s) of the CEE region.

British Car Advertising of the 1960s

During the 1960s, the automobile finally secured its position as an indispensable component of daily life in Britain. Car ownership more than doubled from approximately one car for every 10 people in 1960 to one car for every 4.8 people by 1970. Consumers no longer asked "Do we need a car?" but "What car shall we have?" This well-illustrated history analyzes how both domestic car manufacturers and importers advertised their products in this growing market, identifying trends and themes. Over 180 advertisement illustrations are included.

The Life of the Automobile

A New History of the Motor Car Steven Parissien ... Austin, Morris and Fiat were not the only European success stories to make millions out of the mass manufacture of small, popular cars in the interwar era.

The Life of the Automobile

In this book Steven Parissien examines the impact, development and significance of the automobile over its turbulent and colourful 130-year history. He tells the story of the auto, and of its creators, from its earliest appearance in the 1880s - as little more than a powered quadricycle - via the early pioneer carmakers, the advances of the interwar era, the 'Golden Age' of the 1950s and the iconic years of the 1960s to the decades of doubt and uncertainty following the oil crisis of 1973, which culminated in the global mergers of the 1990s and the bailouts of the early twenty-first century. This is not just a story of horsepower and performance. The Life of the Automobile is a tale of people: of intuitive carmakers such as Benz, Agnelli, Royce and Citron; of exceptionally gifted designers such as Issigonis, Lefebvre, Michelotti and Bangle; and of visionary industrialists such as Ford, Tata and Porsche. Above all, The Life of the Automobile demonstrates how the epic story of the car mirrors the history of the modern era, from the brave hopes and soaring ambitions of the early twentieth century to the cynicism and ecological concerns of a century later.

Motoring the Future

Motoring the Future: VW and Toyota Vying for Pole Position deals with the challenges facing the global car industry today, analyzing Volkswagen and Toyota, with some surprising results. The book provides insights into each car manufacturer's corporate culture, products, production, leadership and technologies, as well as some thoughts on the future of the car. These two opponents vying for pole position could hardly be more different: Toyota, with a focus on manufacturing excellence, is dominant in its home market, the USA and south-east Asia, whereas VW, with its strategy of product excellence, leads in western Europe, Brazil and China. Industrial dominance will be important to them in the future, with both companies needing to master the next steps in product and manufacturing excellence. The race is by no means over, offering a deep insight into the challenges for carmakers moving away from fossil fueled combustion to alternative energy vehicles for the mass market. Major players are trying to answer the key question: How will the car of the future look? VW and Toyota now need to keep ambitious competitors at bay. Timing is everything: US manufacturers are focused on their own revival; Korean and Chinese players are progressing surprisingly fast. However, it looks like the battle for pole position will likely remain between Toyota and VW. Motoring the Future offers updates on Volkswagen's and Toyota's next generation vehicles, both plotting a new course into the future. In this thoroughly revised edition the book, new facts and material have extended the scope to American manufacturers and to new competitors from the Far East.
