Drive On!

by L.J.K. Setright

Emphatically, this is not just another book of cars. It is a book about evolution and revolution since 1800, which is when Setright reckons that modern times began. As a social history of the car, its scope is enormous.

Some writers have previously studied what the car has done to society, but they have invariably taken a view that has been either geographically too narrow or historically too short. None has studied what society has done to the car, until now.

L.J.K. Setright, the most eminent motoring writer of our age, has written the definitive text from both these aspects and personally chosen over 300 surprisingly diverse pictures to illustrate it. Drive On! is a book that the motoring enthusiast can read with pleasure, the critic with growing understanding, the historian with some surprise, and the scholar with satisfaction.

Measuring 290mm x 240mm, the book extends to 312 pages. Limited to 2000 copies, over three editions.
