Automobile Dependence and Denial: The Elephant in the Bedroom: Impacts on the Economy and Environment

The elephant in question is the American automobile and its true cost to the citizenry, economy, and environment. The authors, both engineers, provide a more reasoned, well-written, and holistic introduction to the subject than one would expect from a manifesto. Their thesis is that the automobile is much more expensive than we realize when taxes, parking, and environmental concerns are considered. The answer to the problem, expounded at length, is full-cost pricing of all automobiles, highways, and automobile by-products. Like most manifestos, this one has lots of passion, no footnotes, and few numbers, and it treats competing ideas with disdain. Most readers will need proof before agreeing that raising the cost of gasoline to $9 per gallon will result in ``better familial discipline.'' Nevertheless, this is a compelling, informative book about a very real problem.-- Kenneth M. Locke, Radford, Va.
