The House of Rothschild

£6.99

Product description

This second volume of Niall Ferguson's acclaimed, landmark history of the legendary Rothschild banking dynasty concludes his myth-breaking portrait of one of the most powerful and fascinating families of modern times. With all the depth, clarity and drama with which he traced the Rothschild's ascent, Ferguson shows how their power waned as conflicts from Crimea to the Second World War repeatedly threatened the stability of their worldwide empire, and how their failure to establish themselves successfully in the United States would prove fateful. At once a classic family saga and a major work of economic, social and political history, this is the definitive biography of some of the most powerful financiers of recent times.

This book is in good readable condition throughout. The front and the back cover are also in good condition. There are no missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears and no underlining or highlighting of text. Minor printing 'bleed' mark on open leaf of the pages, when it was printed new.
