One Less Car: Bicycling and the Politics of Automobility
by Zack Furness Author
While millions of Americans bicycle for exercise, only 1% of the total U.S. population ride bicycles for transportation—and half as many use bikes to work.
In his original and exciting book, Zack Furness examines what it means historically, culturally, socioeconomically, and politically to be a bicyclist and a bicycle transportation advocate/activist.
Stephen Duncombe says this is the first work "that situates cycling as a resistant culture, and it will become the standard on the subject. As a case study of a politicized subculture, it will appeal to scholars and students in cultural studies, communications, and social movements."
And we agree! Bicycles can be political and the sheer volume of Zack's original research has done a great service for generations to come! Expect a follow up book from him and Microcosm on the subject in the coming years!
