The Death of Holden : The bestselling account of the decline of Australian manufacturing Paperback / softback

Description

When Holden signalled that it would close its Adelaide factory, it struck at the very heart of Australian identity.

Holden is our car made on our shores. It's the choice of patriotic rev heads and suburban drivers alike.

How could a car that was so beloved - and so popular - be so unprofitable to make?The story of the collapse of Holden is about the people who make and drive the cars; it's about sustaining industry in Australia; it's about communities of workers and what happens when the work dries up. And if it's not quite about the death of an icon - because Holdens will remain on Australian roads for a long time to come - then it's about what happens when an icon falls to its knees in front of a whole nation..
