McCartney, Laton

Title:

The Teapot Dome Scandal: How Big Oil Bought the Harding White House and Tried to Steal the Country

ISBN:

Mix hundreds of millions of dollars in petroleum reserves; rapacious oil barons and crooked politicians; under-the-table payoffs; murder, suicide, and blackmail; White House cronyism; and the excesses of the Jazz Age. The result: the granddaddy of all American political scandals, Teapot Dome.
