Críticas:

Heitmann and Morales are absolutely correct—the history of stealing cars is a theme almost absent from historical works, including works that deal specifically with the automobile in America. This book is an important addition to the literature, and I am impressed by how many sides of the subject the authors examine and by the range of historical materials they have researched and cited.

(Larry D. Lankton, Michigan Technological University)

This volume tells a social and cultural history of auto theft -- honest -- and it does so remarkably well.

Stealing Cars; Technology & Society from the Model T to the Gran Torino provides a fine study of auto theft and culture, and examines a range of topics to include motives, methods, and more. Studies of transportation issues have typically focused on auto manufacturing history, so it's refreshing to see a treatment that considers users and the automobile's role in American life.

Stealing Cars fills a lacuna in the historical literature on the automobile. Thus, this is a thoughtful, useful study.

(Jeffrey S. Adler Michigan Historical Review)

Full of good history and excellent research... Heitmann and Morales mix in just enough psychology, sociology, and talk of morals, sex, and love of speed to make the work educational but not didactic. All auto enthusiasts should get this book. Highly recommended.
