New York Times Bestseller: "A historical overview of the auto industry in the United States and Japan [and] the gradual decline of U.S. manufacturing" ( Library Journal ).
After generations of creating high-quality automotive products, American industrialists began losing ground to the Japanese auto industry in the decades after World War II. David Halberstam, with his signature precision and absorbing narrative style, traces this power shift by delving into the boardrooms and onto the factory floors of the America's Ford Motor Company and Japan's Nissan. Different in every way--from their reactions to labor problems to their philosophies and leadership styles--the two companies stand as singular testaments to the challenges brought by the rise of the global economy.

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Fifties and The Coldest Winter , and filled with intriguing vignettes about Henry Ford, Lee Iacocca, and other visionary industrial leaders, The Reckoning remains a powerful and enlightening story about manufacturing in the modern age, and how America fell woefully behind.
This ebook features an extended biography of David Halberstam.
