Jeremy Packer’s Mobility without Mayhem is reviewed in the Independent Weekly. Reviewer Gerry Canavan writes, "Packer’s study of the cultural anxieties surrounding the automobile and the attempts to regulate this space (always in the name of "safety") is quite exhaustive. . . ." Canavan especially likes "Packer’s examination of the popularity of the Cadillac in African-American communities during this middle part of the 20th century."
