The Rockefellers : an American dynasty by Peter Collier ( Book )
16 editions published between 1976 and 1993 in English and Chinese and held by 350 libraries worldwide
Against a richly detailed backdrop of history, the story of this unique American family unfolds. It begins with John D. Rockefeller Sr., who amassed a fortune amid the muck and disorder of the Pennsylvania oil fields and left his son to deal with the public outcry. It follows Rockefeller Jr. as he built the charities and foundations that made the name a public institution. And it tracks the lives of the junior Rockefeller's the five Rockefeller Brothers. Here then is Laurance, clever and charming as a youth, burned out and cynical by middle age; Winthrop, the shy, awkward, black sheep who finally made a mark for himself in the eyes of everyone but his family; JDR3, introverted and anxious even after years of proving himself; David, a man on the move who took the nation's front-ranking bank and made it number three; and Nelson, ambitious, aggressive, the brother who broke the unwritten family code.

The Kennedys by Peter Collier ( Recording )
27 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 202 libraries worldwide
Who are the Kennedys? Are they the brilliant, heroic, extraordinary people their admirers believe them to be? Or are they arrogant, competitive, self-absorbed children of a willful and immensely rich patriarch, as their detractors claim? In fact, they are all of these things and more. Years in the making, based on hundreds of interviews with family members and associates and extensive research into archives and sources unused until now, this is the nationwide best-seller whose very publication caused an uproar in the press...the first and only book to fully penetrate the Kennedy inner sanctum and reveal the true, all too human saga behind America's most famous family.
The Roosevelts by Peter Collier ( Recording )
3 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
The story of the Roosevelts is usually seen as a tale of two presidents--Theodore and Franklin--separated by time and politics, and of two families--the Oyster Bay and Hyde Park branches--that had little to do with each other. Collier and Horowitz paint an explosive new portrait which offers a completely unique view of America's longest lasting and most powerful dynasty. In this brilliant biography, we see for the first time how the family divided into two branches and began an epic battle for the family legacy. We see for the first time how the ideals of two presidents were passed on to members of later generations, ennobling some and crushing others. The Roosevelts is a rare look at what brought this exceptional group of people together and what drove them apart.
