Mandela : the authorized biography by Anthony Sampson ( Book )
23 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 2,868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mandela is filled with new insights and information. We see how prison, which he and his fellow inmates turned into a kind of unofficial university, gradually transformed Mandela from a headstrong activist into a reflective and consummately skilled statesman. We learn how British and American diplomats cold-shouldered him when support was desperately needed, and about the political infighting, sometimes vicious, that went on between anti-apartheid factions. Particularly fascinating is Sampson's narrative of the incredible negotiations leading to Mandela's release from prison and the eventual collapse of the white regime, when his colleagues feared that he was selling out to the government."--BOOK JACKET

Exxon, Gulf, Texaco, Mobil, Socal, B.P., and Shell: five huge American companies, one British company, and one Anglo-Dutch concern have dominated the world of oil - as oil has dominated all of us - for most of the century since the first Pennsylvania strike. How did this largest and most critical of the world's industries come under the control of these seven giants, and what will happen to them now, balanced on the tightrope between the demands of consumers and their partnership with the producing countries of OPEC?

Company man : the rise and fall of corporate life by Anthony Sampson ( Book )
14 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How and why this transformation took place is the subject of Company Man, a brilliant social history of business. Anthony Sampson begins with a perceptive look at capitalism as it began to develop its modern form in the middle of the nineteenth century and the notion of the company man - respectable, reliable, and reasonably well paid - began to emerge. Sampson follows the evolution of this species into the twentieth century as formerly entrepreneurial organizations began to ossify into bureaucratic, complacent structures that reached their peak in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Then, for good reasons, everything began to unravel, with consequences not only for the companies but also for the millions of people who relied on them for their livelihoods. The changes of the past twenty years have been brutal and are continuing

Who runs this place? : the anatomy of Britain in the 21st century by Anthony Sampson ( Book )
13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Anthony Sampson, exasperated by the lack of democracy and accountability in Blair's Britain, examines power today and finds it increasingly centralised in Downing Street, which has never been more distant from parliament - or closer to big business. Sampson is impatient with abuses of power but hopeful that the British people will reassert their democratic rights, whether as voters or shareholders. His Anatomy provides an insider's tour, with exceptional sources; but it is on the side of the outsider, written for ordinary citizens who want to know who manipulates their lives - and how to make them answer
