Product Overview

"One Less Car is a serious update and expansion of the social and political history of bicycling. I would own this book for the notes and bibliography alone."---Robert Hurst, author of The Cyclist's Manifesto and The Art of Cycling

"One Less Car is intelligent, thought provoking, passionate, and well written. It will fit nicely between activist bike books like Chris Carisson's Critical Mass and more `objective' work on bikes. One Less Car [is] the first work, to my knowledge, 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."---Stephen Duncombe, Professor and Codirector of Comparative Media Studies, MIT

"One Less Car is a very engaging and sophisticated analysis of the bicycle, its culture, and its politics. Zack Furness beautifully contextualizes his work within broader social and historical circumstances, and he insightfully addresses an issue whose political and environmental consequences demand our attention."---Jeff Ferrell, Professor of Sociology, Texas Christian University; Visiting Professor of Criminology, University of Kent, UK; and author of Tearing Down the Streets: Adventures in Urban Anarchy

In his original and exciting book, One Less Car, Zack Furness examines what it means historically, culturally, socioeconomically, and politically to be a bicycle transportation advocate/activist.
