The birth of the muscle car, mid-sized cars with big engines making big horsepower, marked not only a revolution in performance?but also a revolution in marketing. For the first time ever, car manufacturers tailored their product to a youth audience. The genre thrived in the 60s and early 70s and was reborn in the 21st century. The All-American Muscle Car celebrates the fifty-year history of the breed through stunning modern and archival photography, and brilliant essays from today?s top muscle-car writers. Organized by themes, its chapters cover the introduction and early years of muscle; the cultural trends that made muscle cars so wildly popular; the pop culture that surrounded the cars in music, film, and television; and racing, both legal and illegal. Great rivalries are detailed?Camaro versus Mustang versus Firebird versus Challenger versus?Cuda, GTO versus Road Runner versus Super Bee versus Chevelle SS versus Buick Gran Sport versus Oldsmobile 4-4-2, and the like. The book also explores the illogical extremes at the end of the classic era, the Plymouth Superbirds, GTOJudges, LS6 Chevelles, Hemi?Cudas, W-30 Oldsmobiles, Ram Air IV Pontiacs, Stage I GSX Buicks, and 440/6 Road Runners; the dark years and the death of performance; the rebirth of the muscle car; and the modern interpretations of the breed including the new Camaro, Mustang, and Challenger.

On the eve of the introduction of the first Camaro of the twenty-first century, this big book chronicles the rich history of an American muscle-car era icon. Here, accompanied by fabulous photographs of the models that made history, is the full story of Camaro’s forty years. Beginning with Chevrolet's race in the Sixties to capture the emerging youth market, the book follows Chevrolet’s efforts to come up with a car that could out-muscle the Mustang. The Camaro was that car, and in the years after its introduction in 1967, it set some of the most important performance marks in American automotive history. The classics of the muscle-car era are here--the RS, SS, Z/28, and IROC-Z--along with the models that jumpstarted a new era of American performance in the 1980s. In flashing color and fine detail, Camaro Forty Years captures the innovations and fierce competition, the changes in style and technology that make the story of this legendary car a part of the American automotive story--now opening a new chapter.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.
