Taking on the Trust: The Epic Battle of Ida Tarbell and John D. Rockefeller Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This extensively researched account of one woman's successful attempt to take on one of the largest oil companies in the world, which just happened to be owned by John D. Rockefeller, is a truly exceptional piece of work worthy of multiple listens. Pam Ward reads with vigor and enthusiasm, presenting Weinberg's account of Ida Tarbell and justice during the Progressive Era with honesty and resolve. Ward reads with remarkable clarity but never slows to a lethargic pace. While the subject may seem aimed at a limited audience, the topics of discussion are largely applicable in today's modern world, and Ward seems positively aware of this in her reading. A Norton hardcover (Reviews, Dec. 17). (May)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Long before the rise of mega-corporations like Wal-Mart and Microsoft, Standard Oil controlled the oil industry with a monopolistic force unprecedented in American business history. Undaunted by the ruthless power of its owner, John D. Rockefellar a fearless and ambitious reporter named Ida Minerva Tarbell confronted the company known simply as "The Trust."
