Summary
The first hard-hitting examination of ExxonMobil, this book is the masterful result of Coll's indefatigable reporting. He draws here on more than four hundred interviews, field reporting from the halls of Congress to the oil-laden swamps of the Niger Delta, more than one thousand pages of previously classified U.S. documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, heretofore unexamined court records, and many other sources. A penetrating, newsbreaking study, this book is a defining portrait of ExxonMobil and the place of Big Oil in American politics and foreign policy
