Product description

Review

Magisterial ... a revealing history of our time (Bill McKibben New York Review of Books)

Meticulously researched and elegantly written, it is likely to be the definitive work on its subject for many years to come. Steve Coll ... is honest about Exxon's strengths as well as its flaws, and presents both sides of the arguments with scrupulous even-handedness ... At every stop there are vivid anecdotes, sharp insights and telling details (Ed Crooks Financial Times)

Masterful ... Coll's in-depth reporting, buttressed by his anecdotal prose, make Private Empire a must-read ... [His] portrait of ExxonMobil is both riveting and appalling... Yet Private Empire is not so much an indictment as a fascinating look into American business and politics (San Francisco Chronicle)

Meticulous, multi-angled and valuable ... Coll's prose sweeps the earth like an Imax camera (Dwight Garner New York Times)

A thorough, sobering study of the pernicious consolidation of Big Oil ... jaw-dropping reading (Kirkus Reviews)
