About the Book

RothschildsMorgansFordsToyodaAgnellisRockefellersGuggenheimsDynastic family businesses have everything: extraordinary success, bizarre eccentricity, bitter rivalry – as well as pots of money and power. Yet almost no one has looked closely enough to see what it is that really makes them tick.In Dynasties, award-winning author David Landes casts his eye over some of the most powerful family businesses in Europe, Japan and America. On the way, he provides thrilling histories of the characters who have made their mark on the world and passed on a legacy – sometimes benign and sometimes not – to their descendants.
