The history of the Standard Oil Company by Ida M Tarbell( Book )

2 editions published between 1905 and 1933 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tarbell's story, serialized by McClure's from 1902 to 1904, recounts the history of John D. Rockefeller's company. The first major industrial monopoly in the U.S., Standard Oil was, in 1901, the largest corporation in the country, and at its peak controlled as much as eighty-five percent of oil refining in America. But with all his wealth and power, Rockefeller could not protect himself from Tarbell. Her story of the company, which became a model for investigative journalists, placed the blame for increasingly commercialized American ideals and materialistic values at Rockefeller's doorstep
The history of the Standard Oil Company by Ida M Tarbell( Book )

2 editions published between 1905 and 1966 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ida Tarbell's masterly work of investigative journalism ... [from] Ida Tarbell and her fellow idealists at McClure's Magazine at the turn of the 20th century. She and her colleagues came to President Roosevelt's attention, at first with doubt, but later with appreciation. His actions helped to bring about remarkable and desperately needed changes ... 'Muckrakers' was the name that Theodore Roosevelt gave journalists of the early part of the 20th century who exposed abuses in American business and government. Ida Tarbell, one of the original muckrakers, was able to help shut down the Standard Oil Company monopoly that had hampered her father's efforts in the oil industry in Pennsylvania. Standard Oil founder John D. Rockefeller, irked by her stinging expose, dubbed her Miss Tarbarrel. The History of the Standard Oil Company is listed number five among the top 100 works of twentieth-century American journalism by the New York Times in 1999. This ... eventually led to effective regulation of the Standard Oil Company, was the inaugural work for crusading journalists whose mission was to expose corruption in politics and the abuses of big business during the early twentieth century. The history combined descriptions of John D. Rockefeller's business practices with his personal characteristics, creating an image of a cunning and ruthless person - -a picture that not even decades of Rockefeller philanthropy were able to dispel"--Back cover
