Overview

John D. Rockefeller was the wealthiest man that America had ever know. The Standard Oil trust he created controlled the world's oil (even after it was broken up.) Edward Jay Epstein, author of the prize winning biography of Armand Hammer, now turns to the Rockefeller dynasty that produced Governors, Senators, and even a Vice President of the United States. Lord Acton famously wrote “all power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” This investigative biography explores the corrosive influence of the Rockefeller’s power over three generations , which, defying Lord Acton’s maxim, produced good as well as corruption. An EJE Original.
