Book Description

25 Nov 1999
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars a job well done 31 Dec 2009
By Mr. Nj Mcallister VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
If it is conspiracy theory you are after look elsewhere. If however you want an incredibly well researched book on the House of Rothschild and the periods of history they span then this is a good intelligent read. Ferguson is an historian at the top of his game and he produces the goods here. My only criticism is that I would have liked a bit more juicy gossip and it is very long. However in fairness it is also a huge subject and I don't think it would have been possible to cover it in less pages and Ferguson does history not Hello Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Very welll documented 9 April 2014
Format:Paperback
Reading Niall Fergusons's book about the Rothschilds was a please. Very well documented, captures European history of late XVIII and early XIX centuries as well as the family's moves during those times in their quest to speculate and get rich.
Looking forward to read the sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Summary 5 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well researched and a more balanced view of the family. Strong emphasis on religion and family as the motivations behind the founding members of the House. A useful insight for anyone looking to how international financial markets started and classic example of the first mover advantage.
