Upcoming New Book Highlights Auto Industry

New Alexandria Press announces the scheduled publication of a new book, slated for later this summer.

Entitled Rustbelt Odyssey: Tales of a Motor City Dissident, the book traces the life and career of Norman Krandall, a retired auto executive who spent his career working for the Ford Motor Company.

Written by Krandall himself, the book gives glimspes of life growing up in Hamtramck, Michigan, as the son of Polish-American immigrants. Following a stint in the Navy during World War II, Krandall went on to teach at Central Michigan University before joining the Ford Motor Company. He was also a successful and prominent local political organizer and activist. He retired from Ford in the early 1980s, and spent twenty years living in Ireland, before returning to the United States in time for the 2008 elections.
