They trace their fortune back to the days of King Louis XVI. They brought their tradition of innovation and enormous influence with them to the New World. They are the du Ponts, and they are one of the most fascinating, powerful and reclusive families in America. While the family name is familiar to almost everyone, the stories of the individual members of this reclusive Delaware clan are not nearly as well known. With privileged insights provided by Irenee du Pont, Jr., William H du Pont and former Delaware governor Pete du Pont--the most publicly visible member of the family in generations--THE DU PONT DYNASTY offers a rare glimpse inside their exclusive world, tracing their long history, chronicling their many accomplishments, and exposing some of the darker chapters in the family and corporate history. Scholars, historians and the du Ponts themselves help tell the complete story of the family that has long held that their name should only appear in the paper when a du Pont is born, married, or dies!
