Summary
"When GM Holden signalled that it would close its Adelaide factory in 2017, it struck at the very heart of Australian identity. Holden is our car, made on our shores. It's the choice of patroitic rev heads and suburban drivers alike. How could cars that were so beloved - and so popular - be so unprofitable to make? The story of the collapse of Holden is about the people who make and drive the cars; it's about sustaining industry in Australia; it's about communities of workers and what happens when the work dries up. It's also the story of Toyota, Mitsubishi and Ford. Of Alcoa, the Telford coal mine and the Williamstown shipyard. It's about the people of Elizabeth, Geelong, Dandenong and Broadmeadows. In this extraordinary account of Australian history as it unfolds, journalist Royce Kurmelovs revisits the Adelaide of his childhood and the Holden factory just down the road. He confronts the South Australia of the future, when the factory jobs are all gone. And he takes a good, hard look at what's in story for Australia when Holden shuts its doors for the last time"--Back cover
