FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘An Eric Mottram essay is an extraordinary artifact. He ranges widely and deeply, interested in imaginative writing from James Fenimore Cooper to Burroughs (Edgar Rice or William) and beyond. Engineers and visionaries like Buckminster Fuller intrigue him. So does the culture of mass entertainment and technology represented by the cinema and the automobile. He is fascinated by official pronouncements and what they conceal; by apocalypse and fantasy; by the fusion of real and surreal in the scenarios of the United States. Eric Mottram is an original and so are his densely documented yet visionary writings.’ - Marcus Cunliffe. Guns and men in the West; the car as an image of escape, in film, literature and everyday life; fears of invasion from underground or outer space; the interaction of culture and technology in US history: these are a few of Eric Mottram’s themes, and on them he brings to bear his encyclopedic knowledge of great American fiction and pulp novels, B-movies and art films, rock lyrics and poetry. His method is to take one subject, and in exploring it to penetrate to the heart of American dreams of speed, power and destiny. His concern is with the human possibilities that fantasies of technologic al domination exclude, and his kaleidoscopic writings — building up a rich layer of quotations — are a memorable record of how the American mind has responded to the endless innovation of destructive and productive force. Blood on the Nash Ambassador is a compulsive and disturbing overview of the world’s most dynamic and influential culture. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket With Some Small Tears.
