From Library Journal
Cargill is one of the world's largest privately held corporations with assets over $213 billion dollars. The company is America's number one grain merchandiser and has expanded its economic ventures to include meats, steel, and financial services. Broehl uses a wide variety of primary and secondary sources, including personal correspondence from Cargill files, to present a detailed narrative of the company's growth from a small frontier enterprise to a modern day corporate giant with 800 locations, 70 product lines, and 50,000 employees. This history gives readers a look at the public and private aspects of the Cargill empire with details about the family, effects of two world wars on the company's assets, innovations that helped it expand, relations with labor unions and farmers, government regulations, financial problems, international interests, management techniques, leadership strategies, and insights concerning the company's future. Some readers may be distracted by minutiae about individuals or events, which could have been omitted without detracting from the work. Recommended for agribusiness collections.
