Summary: Export Drive: BMC & British Leyland Cars in Europe and the World 1945-85.By the author of "British Leyland: Chronicle of a Car Crash" this chunky book looks at how Britain's car industry fared in foreign markets during the forty years following 1945, a period which saw British firms overtaken by Continental and Japanese rivals.First Austin, then BMC (the British Motor Corporation) and finally British Leyland are profiled as "a thread", focusing on export activities and overseas operations. Highs and lows experienced in the Commonwealth, the United States and Europe are treated distinctly, with the main emphasis being on Europe.It's a book about the car industry, but written by a "petrol head" it includes plenty of detail on actual cars and around 60 illustrations, many in colour.Much of the period photography has been sourced from the archives of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust.
