The immigrant's son who rose to become president of Mobil recounts his libel suit against "The Washington Post" and explains the personal and public concerns that caused him to file the landmark suit
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Tavoulareas, former president of Mobil Oil, offers his version of Tavoulareas v. The Washington Post , an ongoing libel suit that will eventually be settled by the U.S. Supreme Court. The plaintiff contends that the Post sullied his good name in 1979 in articles alleging various fiscal misdeeds, including a shady deal to enrich his son. No reviewer is in a position to judge the validity of Tavoulareas's claims, but certainly this book would have been much more effective had it been written after, rather than before, the case was resolved. Moreover, Tavoulareas's tone tends to be defensive and self-serving. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart once wrote "No man can be judge in his own case," advice that Tavoulareas would have done well to heed. Not recommended. Kenneth F. Kister, Pinellas Park P.L., Fla.
