Sinopsis:

This unauthorized biography sets out to expose the reality behind the exploits of the oil magnate and industrialist who is one of the world's richest and most powerful men. From Lenin to Gorbachev, Hoover to Bush, Gaddafi to Prince Charles, Hammer has met and influenced many world leaders. He has survived years of FBI surveillance, the accusations of the Internal Revenue Service, and the suspicions of the CIA who suspect him of being a tool of communist governments. But what have been the true motives behind his deal-making, personal diplomacy, art collecting and humanitarian efforts? This book seeks to provide the answers.

From Publishers Weekly:

With broad archival research and hundreds of interviews (though none with Armand Hammer himself), University of Missouri journalism professor Weinberg portrays in depth a unique 20th-century character. A one-time M.D., capitalist benefactor of an infant U.S.S.R. and friend of Lenin, U.S. importer of Czarist art, big-time post-Prohibition distiller, world-class oil tycoon and self-appointed adviser to seven American presidents, Hammer, now 90, according to the author, used personal contacts with every Soviet leader after Stalin to conduct behind-the-scenes cold-war diplomacy while building up his Occidental Petroleum Co. in Texas, California, Great Britain, the U.S.S.R., Libya, Israel and China. He has bought, sold and given away fine art on a grand scale and donated millions of dollars to medicine, education and cultural exchanges. Weinberg bitingly records Hammer's acute self-esteem, along with alleged sharp practices and questionable dealings. But his ebullient subject's achievements in many directions remain overwhelming.
