Winner of the National Book Award and nowconsidered a classic, The House of Morgan is the mostambitious history ever written about an American banking dynasty. Acclaimed by theWall Street Journal as “brilliantlyresearched and written,” the book tells the rich, panoramic story of fourgenerations of Morgans and the powerful, secretive firms they spawned. It isthe definitive account of the rise of the modern financial world. A grippinghistory of banking and the booms and busts that shaped the world on both sidesof the Atlantic, The House of Morgan traces the trajectory of the J.
