Product Description

Publisher: Shire Books

Author: George Mowat-Brown

This book traces the history of the company, starting with the cycle-making precursors of the Rover Company Limited. Covering the struggle through the Depression of the 1930s, and the expansions, mergers and contractions of the post-war period - the time of Roverís greatest success - the author then discusses Roverís placement within British Aerospace, the influence of the Japanese company Honda, and the ownership by BMW and the Phoenix Consortium.
