Author
Niall Ferguson 
Summary
<b>From the bestselling author of&#xa0;<i>The Ascent of Money&#xa0;</i>and&#xa0;<i>The Square and the Tower</i></b><br /><br />In his rich and nuanced portrait of the remarkable, elusive Rothschild family, Oxford scholar and bestselling author Niall Ferguson uncovers the secrets behind the family's phenomenal economic success. He reveals for the first time the details of the family's vast political network, which gave it access to and influence over many of the greatest statesmen of the age. And he tells a family saga, tracing the importance of unity and the profound role of Judaism in the lives of a dynasty that rose from the confines of the Frankfurt ghetto and later used its influence to assist oppressed Jews throughout Europe. A definitive work of impeccable scholarship with a thoroughly engaging narrative, <i>The House of Rothschild</i> is a biography of the rarest kind, in which mysterious and fascinating historical figures finally spring to life.
