The rise of the corporate commonwealth : U.S. business and public policy in the twentieth century by Louis Galambos( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors take the reader from the world of J.P. Morgan, when a private network of investment banks presided over a tumultuous market of competing entrepreneurial firms, to the world of Lee Iacocca, where the power of even the most celebrated chief executive is more than matched by the government. Morgan commanded; business leaders of the 1980s negotiate. Over the course of the twentieth century, corporations developed new means of innovating and of achieving efficiency and control of their political and market environments. -- Book Jacket

Builders : Herman and George R. Brown by Joseph A Pratt( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Herman and George R. Brown, formidable figures in the construction industry and Texas politics, made a unique business team. Practical and decisive Herman, a builder by nature, and university trained, soft-spoken George, a natural salesperson, combined their individual strengths with their shared work ethic and ambition to develop Brown & Root, a company that began by building roads and grew into a diversified international construction company. Builders serves both as a history of their careers and as an examination of business life in mid-twentieth-century America. In addition to examining Herman and George Brown's business accomplishments, Joseph A. Pratt and Christopher J. Castaneda also address the political influence and antiunionism associated with the Brown name. The authors present a balanced account of both the Browns' treatment of workers and their longtime relationship with Lyndon Baines Johnson. Builders also traces the brothers' philanthropy, including the work of the Brown Foundation, through which George in particular contributed to the development of educational and cultural institutions. This biography is sure to interest students and enthusiasts of both business and Texas history

Exxon : transforming energy, 1973-2005 by Joseph A Pratt( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin, which houses the extensive ExxonMobil Historical Collection, is honored to publish the fifth volume of Exxon's corporate history, which extends the history of Exxon and its predecessors to more than 125 years, the longest in-depth account of a private company in existence. ExxonMobil's history stretches from the time of kerosene lamps to the era of jet travel, from the days of finding oil by searching for surface indications to the days of 3-D seismic, which uses powerful computers to create images of oil deep underground. Its learning curve was particularly steep in the years covered by this book, 1973-2005, when the company adapted to new realities that confronted it at every turn. ExxonMobil has remained among the most profitable concerns in the history of modern capitalism by showing flexibility when faced with the need to adapt to changing conditions. As the company responded to sweeping changes in global markets, its decisions reflected a deeply held corporate culture that rested on the key operating values of engineering efficiency and financial discipline. This extensively researched volume demonstrates how Exxon's core values and management enabled the company to adapt and succeed during a period of dramatic changes for the energy industry. Pratt and Hale provide readers a historical perspective from inside one of the most powerful corporations in the world

Energy capitals : local impact, global influence by Joseph A Pratt( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fossil fuels propelled industries and nations into the modern age and continue to powerfully influence economies and politics today. As Energy Capitals demonstrates, the discovery and exploitation of fossil fuels has proven to be a mixed blessing in many of the cities and regions where it has occurred. With case studies from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Norway, Africa, and Australia, this volume views a range of older and more recent energy capitals, contrasts their evolutions, and explores why some capitals were able to influence global trends in energy production and distribution while others failed to control even their own destinies"--
