Roads and Landscapes in the United States and Europe
Author: Christof Mauch,Thomas Zeller
Publisher: Ohio University Press
Category: Technology & Engineering
For better or worse, the view through a car's windshield has redefined how we see the world around us. In some cases, such as the American parkway, the view from the road was the be-all and end-all of the highway; in others, such as the Italian autostrada, the view of a fast, efficient transportation machine celebrating either Fascism or its absence was the goal. These varied environments are neither necessary nor accidental but the outcomes of historical negotiations, and whether we abhor them or take delight in them, they have become part of the fabric of human existence. The World beyond the Windshield: Roads and Landscapes in the United States and Europe is the first systematic, comparative look at these landscapes. By looking at examples from the United States and Europe, the chapters in this volume explore the relationship between the road and the landscape that it traverses, cuts through, defines, despoils, and enhances. The authors analyze the Washington Beltway and the Blue Ridge Parkway, as well as iconic roads in Italy, Nazi Germany, East Germany, and Great Britain. This is a story of the transatlantic exchange of ideas about environment and technology and of the national and nationalistic appropriations of such landscaping.

Light and Heavy Vehicle Technology, Fourth Edition, provides a complete text and reference to the design, construction and operation of the many and varied components of modern motor vehicles, including the knowledge needed to service and repair them. This book provides incomparable coverage of both cars and heavier vehicles, featuring over 1000 illustrations. This new edition has been brought fully up to date with modern practices and designs, whilst maintaining the information needed to deal with older vehicles. Two entirely new sections of the book provide a topical introduction to alternative power sources and fuels, and battery-electric, hybrid and fuel-cell vehicles. More information on the latest developments in fuel injection, diesel engines and transmissions has also been added. An expanded list of technical abbreviations now contains over 200 entries – a useful resource for professional technicians in their day-to-day work. This book is an essential textbook for all students of automotive engineering, particularly on IMI / C&G 4000 series and BTEC courses and provides all the underpinning knowledge required for NVQs to level 3. By bridging the gap between basic and more advanced treatments of the subject, it also acts as a useful source of information for experienced technicians and technically minded motorists, and will help them to improve their knowledge and skills.
As today's cars continue to become more complicated and complex, the cost to repair them has continued to climb. However, with some basic knowledge and a little know-how, many of the most expensive repairs can be avoided by simple, regular maintenance, or relatively inexpensive repairs that can be done with a few tools and step-by-step instructions. Car expert, Dave Stribling, has seen every repair in the book, and in Idiot's Guides: Auto Repair and Maintenance, he arms readers with the knowledge they'll need to troubleshoot and diagnose common problems and make simple repairs that are universal to most makes and models. Dozens of step-by-step, full-color photos and illustrations make DIY car repairs and maintenance so much easier. When the repair calls for an expert the time comes to take the car to the shop, Dave arms readers with the knowledge they'll need to make the right choices, to avoid unnecessary repairs, and to minimize the possibility of getting ripped off.
