ABSTRACT
The article provides information about the book "The Story of Reo Joe: Work, Kin, and Community in Autotown, USA," by Lisa M. Fine. The book chronicles the birth, life, and death of the Reo Motor Car Co., which began operations in 1904 and closed its doors in 1975. Reo began manufacturing motor vehicles in Lansing, Michigan, in 1904. Localism was one hallmark of the Reo plant. As with many manufacturing industries in many locations, the Great Depression took its toll on the Reo plant. Despite the legacy of company paternalism, Reo employees eventually were successful in establishing a union at the plant. The period between 1955 and 1975 was tumultuous for Reo and ended with the company's demise in 1975.
