The previous work of the authors of this study would lead one to predict a denunciation to stand with Ida Tarbell's muckraking 1904 attack on Standard Oil. Instead, they present a sensitive family biography, more wistful than angry, more concerned with the impact of immense wealth on individual personality than on society. The authors received special access to the Rockefeller family archives.
