Publisher Description

From the bestselling author of The Ascent of Money and The Square and the Tower

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, The House of Rothschild is a biography of the rarest kind, in which mysterious and fascinating historical figures finally spring to life.

Rothschilds histories

Anyone trying to wrap their heads around the postmodern global socioeconomic condition we find ourselves in sooner or later has to arrive at Rothschilds histories. When you cancel out all the noise you begin to see that the monetary system is not all that hard to understand. Power becomes more and more centralized until it becomes a central computer thus opening up the possibilities to decentralized networks which in turn eventually destroy the power sought by the most powerful families throughout history. The impetus is over, abundance is now. Excellent scholarly work.
