📝Breaking Rockefeller Book Synopsis : The incredible tale of how ambitious oil rivals Marcus Samuel, Jr., and Henri Deterding joined forces to topple the Standard Oil empire Marcus Samuel, Jr., is an unorthodox Jewish merchant trader. Henri Deterding is a take-no-prisoners oilman. In 1889, John D. Rockefeller is at the peak of his power. Having annihilated all competition and possessing near-total domination of the market, even the U.S. government is wary of challenging the great “anaconda” of Standard Oil. The Standard never loses—that is until Samuel and Deterding team up to form Royal Dutch Shell. A riveting account of ambition, oil, and greed, Breaking Rockefeller traces Samuel’s rise from outsider to the heights of the British aristocracy, Deterding’s conquest of America, and the collapse of Rockefeller’s monopoly. The beginning of the twentieth century is a time when vast fortunes were made and lost. Taking readers through the rough and tumble of East London’s streets, the twilight turmoil of czarist Russia, to the halls of the British Parliament, and right down Broadway in New York City, Peter Doran offers a richly detailed, fresh perspective on how Samuel and Deterding beat the world’s richest man at his own game.

📝 Book Synopsis : Грандиозная социал-коммунистическая утопия "LOOKING BACKWARD" или «Взгляд назад» (в русских переводах «Будущий век») принесла Эдварду Беллами наибольшую славу среди его произведений. Главный герой книги под влиянием гипноза заснул летаргическим сном в Бостоне в конце XIX века, а проснулся уже в 2000 году. Он описывает обнаруженный новый общественный порядок, в сущности, американский вариант социализма: «эпоха трестов обрела свою кончину в Великом Тресте», т.е. в Правительстве. Книга вызвала широкий резонанс, в США и других странах возникли политические и общественные движения, ставившие своей целью реализацию описанной в романе общественной системы на практике. Это политическое движение просуществовало более 50 лет, например существовавшая в Нидерландах Партия Беллами просуществовала до 1947 года. Роман переиздавался много раз и в общей сложности был опубликован тиражом свыше одного миллиона экземпляров.

📝Rockefeller Carnegie and Canada Book Synopsis : In the first half of the twentieth century, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation helped to create and maintain a cultural and intellectual infrastructure in Canada that benefited key institutions such as University of Toronto, McGill University, the National Gallery, the Humanities Research Council of Canada, and the Canadian Social Science Research Council. Jeffrey Brison documents how American philanthropy facilitated the transformation from a private, localized system of cultural, intellectual, and academic patronage to a complex, nation-based system of incorporated patronage - a system in which the major patron was the federal state. His study calls into question our essentialistic notions of contrasting national identities and the now-mythologized juxtaposition of an American culture fueled by the free market with a Canadian one sustained by state support.

📝Taking on the Trust How Ida Tarbell Brought Down John D Rockefeller and Standard Oil Book Synopsis : How a female investigative journalist brought down the world’s greatest tycoon and broke up the Standard Oil monopoly. Long before the rise of mega-corporations like Wal-Mart and Microsoft, Standard Oil controlled the oil industry with a monopolistic force unprecedented in American business history. Undaunted by the ruthless power of its owner, John D. Rockefeller (1839–1937), a fearless and ambitious reporter named Ida Minerva Tarbell (1857–1944) confronted the company known simply as “The Trust.” Through her peerless fact gathering and devastating prose, Tarbell, a muckraking reporter at McClure’s magazine, pioneered the new practice of investigative journalism. Her shocking discoveries about Standard Oil and Rockefeller led, inexorably, to a dramatic confrontation during the opening decade of the twentieth century that culminated in the landmark 1911 Supreme Court antitrust decision breaking up the monopolies and forever altering the landscape of modern American industry. Based on extensive research in the Tarbell and Rockefeller archives, Taking on the Trust is a vivid and dramatic history of the Progressive Era with powerful resonance for the first decades of the twenty-first century.

📝Breaking the Color Barrier Book Synopsis : The history of sports and race is messy. In baseball Jackie Robinson is universally touted as the first black major league player, which conveniently forgets Moses Fleetwood Walker and other players of color who appeared on 19th century diamonds. Football deals with the messiness a different way. The sport employs the term "modern era" instead. So Kenny Washington is the first black player of the "modern era." James Harris was the first black quarterback to start an NFL game in the "modern era." Art Shell was the first black head coach of the "modern era." The reason football has to append the qualifier to its historical racial milestones is because there was a man who was doing all those things back when the National Football League began. His name was Fritz Pollard, and this is his story.

📝Breaking the Ties That Bound Book Synopsis : Russia's Great Reforms of 1861 were sweeping social and legal changes that aimed to modernize the country. In the following decades, rapid industrialization and urbanization profoundly transformed Russia's social, economic, and cultural landscape. Barbara Alpern Engel explores the personal, cultural, and political consequences of these dramatic changes, focusing on their impact on intimate life and expectations and the resulting challenges to the traditional, patriarchal family order, the cornerstone of Russia's authoritarian political and religious regime. The widely perceived "marriage crisis" had far-reaching legal, institutional, and political ramifications. In Breaking the Ties That Bound, Engel draws on exceptionally rich archival documentation-in particular, on petitions for marital separation and the materials generated by the ensuing investigations-to explore changing notions of marital relations, domesticity, childrearing, and intimate life among ordinary men and women in imperial Russia. Engel illustrates with unparalleled vividness the human consequences of the marriage crisis. Her research reveals in myriad ways that the new and more individualistic values of the capitalist marketplace and commercial culture challenged traditional definitions of gender roles and encouraged the self-creation of new social identities. Engel captures the intimate experiences of women and men of the lower and middling classes in their own words, documenting instances not only of physical, mental, and emotional abuse but also of resistance and independence. These changes challenged Russia's rigid political order, forcing a range of state agents, up to and including those who spoke directly in the name of the tsar, to rethink traditional understandings of gender norms and family law. This remarkable social history is thus also a contribution to our understanding of the deepening political crisis of autocracy.

📝 Book Synopsis : Трумен Капоте, автор таких бестселлеров, как «Завтрак у Тиффани» (повесть, прославленная в 1961 году экранизацией с Одри Хепберн в главной роли), «Голоса травы», «Другие голоса, другие комнаты», «Призраки в солнечном свете» и другие, входит в число крупнейших американских прозаиков XX века. Самым значительным произведением Капоте многие считают роман «Хладнокровное убийство», основанный на истории реального преступления и раскрывающий природу насилия как сложного социального и психологического феномена. Книга Капоте, мгновенно ставшая бестселлером, породила особый жанр «романа-репортажа» и открыла путь прозе Нормана Мейлера и Тома Вулфа. Взвешенность и непредубежденность авторской позиции, блестящая выверенность стиля, полифоничность изображения сделали роман Капоте образцом документально-художественной литературы; в списке 100 лучших книг XX века по версии газеты The Guardian «Хладнокровное убийство» заняло 84-ю позицию. Одноименная экранизация Ричарда Брукса, выпущенная сразу после публикации романа Капоте, была номинирована на четыре «Оскара».
