When Rolls-Royce was declared bankrupt early in 1971, the effect on an incredulous British public was as though the Rock of Gibraltar had sunk, or Buckingham Palace been demolished. In "Rolls on the Rocks", Robert Gray describes by far the most important financial disaster to hit Britain since the war. He leads up to it with a detailed survey, informative and entertaining, of the history and traditions of a company which had become at once the nation's status symbol and chief bulwark.
