Summary "The book had its origin in 1952, when I went to Detroit as research associate of the Ford Motor Company History Project sponsored by Columbia University and executed under the directions of Allan Nevins. Some of the material in the present study appeared in different form in the initial volume of the Ford history, published by Charles Scribner's Sons in 1954 under the title Ford : the times, the man, the company."--Preface
