"Fifty years ago, in November 1947, Brown & Root helped Kerr-McGee build the first out-of-sight-of-land offshore platform that produced oil." "This history puts a human face on the process of technological change. Using the words of many of those who took part in Brown & Root's offshore activities, this book recounts their efforts to find practical ways to recover offshore oil."--Jacket
The rise of the corporate commonwealth : U.S. business and public policy in the twentieth century by Louis Galambos ( Book )
11 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 963 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 175 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 )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Energy capitals : local impact, global influence ( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 53 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. Chapters show how local and national politics, social structures, technological advantages, education systems, capital, infrastructure, labor force, supply and demand, and other factors have affected the ability of a region to develop and control its own fossil fuel reserves. The contributors also view the environmental impact of energy industries and demonstrate how, in the depletion of reserves or a shift to new energy sources, regions have or have not been able to recover economically. The cities of Tampico, Mexico, and Port Gentil, Gabon, have seen their oil deposits exploited by international companies with little or nothing to show in return and at a high cost environmentally. At the opposite extreme, Houston, Texas, has witnessed great economic gain from its oil, natural gas, and petrochemical industries. Its growth, however, has been tempered by the immense strain on infrastructure and the human transformation of the natural environment. In another scenario, Perth, Australia, Calgary, Alberta, and Stavanger, Norway have benefitted as the closest established cities with administrative and financial assets for energy production that was developed hundreds of miles away. Whether coal, oil, or natural gas, the essays offer important lessons learned over time and future considerations for the best ways to capture the benefits of energy development while limiting the cost to local populations and environments.
