The Car - A History, written by Feða Vukiæ, is a book whose title could easily fool the reader. Once we open the book’s door (its cover, of course, but we commend the ingenious idea of designer Negra Nigoević who put a car’s door knob suggesting we enter the world of cars by opening it), we will be surprised by the first contents page. Instead of an (expected) chronological history from the first models to today’s racers, the titles of the book’s ten chapters clearly announce a different approach. Spanning the invention of the wheel to McLuhan, the book is a very interesting read, as much as because of its insight into tho automotive industry as because of its approach to analyzing the meaning of the car in human history. The chapters are meaningful and inspiring, and we can hope some of its thesis or chapters will become the base of further, separate research. In a new book - or books, perhaps.(M.R.Č)
