Book summary

This text tells the story of the Mini's development over time and the story of how Mini owners have changed and the uses to which the car has been put. A socio-political examination of the Mini as a statement of class, sex, status and environmental intention, the book is also full of tales of racing, naughty goings-on and the Mini's life in films and music. It includes original and contemporary photography, and features interviews with famous, and infamous people who have known and loved Minis, people such as Sterling Moss, Jamie Blandford, Jeremy Clarkson, Damon Hill, Twiggy, David Bailey, George Harrison and Julie Christie. A history of workers' struggles, rust, wood, neglect decline and of the rebirth of the mini is also given. [via]
