Private Empire - Steve Coll

Private Empire (Penguin Press, $36) is Steve Coll’s masterful study of ExxonMobil, the largest and most powerful private corporation in the United States. The company functions as “a corporate state within the American state,” Coll writes, and many of its inner workings are exposed in the book. Still, for all the book’s investigatory rigor and insight, it avoids coming across as an anti-corporate screed, instead offering a fair-minded, extensively researched and elegantly written report on ExxonMobil’s behavior.
