Zilg, Gerard Colby  
Du Pont Behind the Nylon Curtain
 Picture
Publisher: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1974 Englewood Cliffs, NJ.
ISBN: 0132210770 Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "The very name Du Pont brings instant recognition and awe. But relatively few people are aware that, in addition to reeating the worldwide industrial colossus that bears their name, the Du Ponts were instrumental in shaping General Motors into the preeminent corporation in this country and the world. And even fewer people are aware that this richest family in the world also has controlling interests in: Continental Can, Uniroyal, Phillips Petroleum, Remington Arms, Penn Central Railroad, United Fruit, First National Bank of New York, Coca-Cola International, North American Rockwell, Boeing, and scores of other companies. Their personal Du Pont fortune is about $10 billion; with some of those billions the family employs more servants than Britain's royal family and owns more yachts, cars, swimming pools, planes, and estates than any family in recorded history. Du Pont: Behind the Nylon Curtain is the first biography of 'the Barons of Brandywine' written without the authorization of the Du Ponts. Gerard Colby Zilg's meticulously researched account goes beyond the carefully contrived public image of a beneficent chemical corporation to reveal a power-hungry family that used every available means - including industrial espionage, sabotage, and conspiracy against the government - to increase their corporate holdings and personal wealth. Zilg also unfolds the tumultuous personal lives of the Du Ponts and the vicious power struggles that tore the family apart.." 623 pages with index. Book is in GOOD to VERY GOOD condition.
