This reprint of the briefer version of a book that was originally serialized by McClure's Magazine from 1902 to 1904 recounts the history of John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company, the first major industrial monopoly in the US. The story, which became a model for investigative journalists, explores corporate abuses perpetrated by the company. This is an unabridged republication of the Harper Torchbook edition originally published by Harper & Row, Publishers, Incorporated, New York, 1966. There is no subject index.
