Popular Morris models such as the Morris Minor dominated British car sales from the 1920s to the 1950s but, increasingly outclassed by their rivals, the last models of the 1970s and early 1980s were less successful. This well-illustrated history describes the company's rise and fall in fortunes, encompassing two world wars, various mergers and nationalization, and examines each of the cars it produced, from the first Morris Oxford of 1913 to the Marinas and Itals of the British Leyland era.
