An excellent story! I read this book years ago and have been searching for the video tape version of the mini-series for years. I'm comforted to see that I am not the only one who has been searching video stores and mail order catalogs for years in search of the VHS tapes! A must read!

This is simply the best book I've every read. It has an appealing sense of uproar that grabs you from page 1, and it will not let go until you hit the last page. The violence and the change of vast fortunes will give you a feeling of power of a capitalistic society untold in any other book before. I believe in a small round about way, it is telling a story about the Kennedy dynasty. With the untimely passing of JFK-JR, recently it is bringing up many discussions; is there a curse on this family. Read this book, and you decide if is there a curse, or if this book brings back memories of this well know "POWERFULL" family.

I have re-read this book so many times I wore out the original. I have since purchased another copy (in paperback). When will the mini series be released on video? I have searched for a copy for many years now.

I am not sure how I feel about this book to be honest! I found the main character Joseph Armagh an extremely hard character to like. He had a hard start in life to be fair but it left him with a broken personality and an overwhelming desire to have money, but he wanted to have to control everyone's life as well and he schemed, bribed and betrayed everyone to get what he wanted. Money was his god closely followed by power, which as the saying goes corrupts.
There were some very scary concepts within the story, which if, are true, is more terrifying than anything else you could possibly think of.
Joseph was a very unhappy, lonely man, cursed in more ways than one, to live a sad and futile existence, in the end totally alone.

My wife was pregnant with our first child (turned out to be twins). She Saw the mini series first, and then read the book. Named the boys after two characters; Sean and Rory! Jane Seymour was lovely and was not the villain she has been in other roles. We are looking for this video. Does anyone know how we can get it? Please let us know. We would love to show it to our children.

This book should be a resource for every person of mankind to understand his position in a world of greed that can extend beyond the vision of monetary greed but aspires to powers beyond with no concern of the individual soul. It has existed and does exist. I read this book in '72 and have watched her words grow from fiction into reality. Thank you Taylor Caldwell for you courageousness in a dangerous battle.

Read this book many years after enjoying the mini-series. I don't remember how closely the series followed the book, but can easily remember how dashing Perry King was!
One of the things I really liked about the story is the Americana factor -- the 19th and early 20th century history -- as a back-drop.

An inside view of the raw power of world affairs. Set against the backdrop of America in its adolescence, Captains and the Kings will leave no question in the reader's mind as to how the world is really run. Should be required reading for any serious student of political history.
