Autophobia according to MedicalNetcom is an abnormal and persistent fear of loneliness of being alone and of solitude This definition makes it uite an apropos turn of phrase as a title for a book about the history of opposition to the automobile especially since the automobile is inherently a single person activity and the modern daily commute is often done in the solitude of the driver s seatIn Autophobia Love and Hate in the Automotive Age Brian Ladd aimed to tell the history of automobility from the perspective of those who fought against the automobile and its subseuent side effects He introduced the text with a section that defines both the pro automobile attitude as well as that of the car hater reminding readers that the car not only combines the promise of thrills with the sovereign assurance of mobility but also that the contrarians have never been silenced 1 He explained how the car became both savior and destroyer as it helped usher the United States and the rest of the world into modernity Ladd stated that rational discussions about its benefits are no longer possible due to the way people inherently organize their lives around cars and transportationAlthough the reader will easily find that Ladd has an agenda the text tended toward a even handed and scholarly approach to the history of the anti automobile factions He placed both the transportation planners perspectives and the car haters viewpoints in context often explaining each side s logic However the underlying attitude present in the text displayed Ladd s preference for the car haters Interestingly in addition to the usual technical sources such as government reports industry research and scholarly analyses Ladd supported his text with a variety of cultural products depicting the automobile and the motorist In chapter four he put Douglas Adams s The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy into context as a commentary on the bureaucratic nature of British transportation planning In The Hitchhikers Guide the main character Arthur Dent wakes one morning to find a bulldozer ready to level his home to make way for a bypass road When Dent and his friend Ford Prefect who unbeknownst to Dent is actually from another planet escape the planet prior to its destruction Dent learns that the Earth was similarly scheduled for destruction for an interstellar bypass As writers have shown throughout the twentieth century sometimes it is easier to get the truth out via fiction Ladd added references to a variety of fictional works to reiterate his ideas on the effects of transportation and the automobile on cities and people Some of his other references included works by Joan Didion Tom Wolfe and Andy Warhol in addition to recent cultural products such as the movies Who Framed Roger Rabbit and the apocalyptic Mad Max seriesRather than relying on a strict chronological interpretation of this history Ladd wrote toward a conceptual interpretation His subjects divided by chapter included the new machine remorse effects on cities freeway revolts and the uestion of whether or not the automotive age has come to an end By moving from a chronological perspective Ladd showed his readers how the anti automotive movement had both faltered and succeeded His thoroughness came through the narrative as he viewed the automobile through a global lens telling stories from throughout the world The automobile had never been strictly an American phenomenon it transcended geographical and political boundaries and imprinted itself onto people worldwide Thankfully Ladd did not take the strict American interpretation of his subjectLadd brought up many uestions as he delved deeper into the history of the car haters How will the idea of induced traffic affect the next
