Private Empire: Exxonmobil and American Power

    By Steve Coll
An extraordinary and monumental expose of Big Oil from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner SteveColl ("The Washington Post")
In this, the first hard-hitting examination of ExxonMobil the largest and most powerful private corporation in the United States Steve Coll reveals the true extent of its power. "Private Empire" pulls back the curtain, tracking the corporation s recent history and its central role on the world stage, beginning with the Exxon Valdez accident in 1989 and leading to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. The action spans the globe featuring kidnapping cases, civil wars, and high-stakes struggles at the Kremlin and the narrative is driven by larger-than-life characters, including corporate legend Lee Iron Ass Raymond, ExxonMobil s chief executive until 2005. A penetrating, news-breaking study, "Private Empire" is a defining portrait of Big Oil in American politics and foreign policy."

When I got in my car, the temperature gauge on the dashboard read negative four degrees. It was sunny out, but it was the kind of sunlight that seems reluctant—like a lone light in a walk-in freezer—struggling through the cold air to get to you.
