Swiss entrepreneur F.X. Micheloud diverges from standard energy economics texts in this treatise on John D. Rockefeller and the Standard Oil Company. Seven hyperlinked chapters cover nineteenth century oil industry technology, trusts and monopolies, Rockefeller commercial practices, and the development of the Standard Oil Company, among others. The text is available in French or English. Micheloud has enhanced the written information with a variety of archival images, chronologies, and graphs throughout.
