The fall of the Packard Motor Car Company by James Arthur Ward( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the compelling story of the puzzling decline and fall of one of America's most prestigious automobile manufacturers, a company that for most of the fifty-nine years of its history was a synonym for luxury, excellence, and corporate stability. Although many books have extolled the long, glamorous history of Packard, this book focuses on the dark, post-World War II years that led to its dissolution in 1956. For the first time, this book gives an authoritative, deeply researched, and convincing explanation of why the Packard Motor Car Company died in the midst of one of the greatest automotive booms in history

Ferrytale : the career of W.H. "Ping" Ferry by James Arthur Ward( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wilbur H. 'Ping' Ferry (1910-1995) was a self-styled 'town crank', an influential and iconoclastic figure who seemingly knew everyone worth knowing in the mid-twentieth century. This book is the story of his career. From his post as Vice President of the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, Ping harangued the nation about the evils of technology, environmental degradation, racial inequality, educational deficiencies, and the threat of nuclear war. He also publicly resigned from the Democratic Party in protest against President Lyndon Johnson's Vietnam policy, and promoted televised executions as the best way of combating capital punishment. He fought for world-wide disarmament by supporting with friendship and money such luminaries as E. P. Thompson, the great English social historian and founder of European Nuclear Disarmament. In Victor Navasky's words, Ping's ultimate importance was 'the impossible example he set for the rest of us'." -- Publisher's description
