Summary Award-winning journalist Gerard Colby takes readers behind the scenes of one of Americas most powerful and enduring corporations; now with a new introduction by the author. The Du Pont story in this country began in 1800, the Du Pont reign has been dappled with scandal for centuries. Culled from years of painstaking research and interviews, this fully documented book unfolds like a novel. Laying bare the bitter feuds, power plays, smokescreens, and careless unaccountability that erupted in murder, Colby pulls back the curtain on a dynasty whose formidable influence continues to this day. Suppressed in myriad ways and the subject of the author's landmark federal lawsuit, Du Pont Dynasty is an essential history of the United States.
