A well-researched look at the British motor industry which will appeal to both academic readers and practitioners alike. Why are there now no major car manufacturers in Britain? Whisler considers this and the surrounding issues, making valuable comparisons with overseas manufacturers operating both in the UK and abroad, which provide us with additional interest and insight. Based upon careful use of company archives, including previously unavailable material from the 1970s and 1980s, this book covers in particular the issues of product development, quality, design, and range, ensuring that The British Motor Industry, 1945-94 is destined to make a distinctive contribution to our understanding of the performance of UK manufacturers.
