Continuing the sweeping narrative that he began with The House of Rothschild: Money's Prophets, 1798-1848, Oxford University historian Niall Ferguson conjures up a world in which widespread change and utter uncertainty held sway in the place of carefully ordered dynasties and universally observed mores. In the aftermath of the Napoleonic revolution, European Jews had been able to move within dominant societies somewhat more freely. Of no family was this more true than the Rothschilds, whose branches lived in Germany, France, Austria, and England, and whose vast financial empire enabled them to act as diplomats and power brokers throughout the world. Their influence was enormous. When Spain wanted to build a railroad, its ministers approached the House of Rothschild. When the Confederate States of America sought to be recognized by the states of Europe, it sought--unsuccessfully--the Rothschilds' support. When Ferdinand de Lesseps broke ground for the Panama Canal and Cecil Rhodes broke ground for his vast diamond and gold mines in South Africa, Rothschild funds backed them.

Until the 1920s, Ferguson demonstrates, there was almost no economic, technological, or political development in Europe in which the House of Rothschild did not play some role. The rise of nationalist and national socialist movements and of official anti-Semitism, coupled with the rise in the Jazz Age of a new generation of Rothschilds that cared more for the good life than for the hard work of maintaining their holdings, led to a substantial decline in the family's authority and wealth. But even today, as Ferguson writes in this richly detailed but eminently readable history, the Rothschilds figure in European finance, continuing a legacy that Ferguson's two volumes trace from the Middle Ages to the new millennium. --Gregory McNamee -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


This second volume of Niall Ferguson's acclaimed, landmark history of the legendary Rothschild banking dynasty concludes his myth-breaking portrait of one of the most powerful and fascinating families of modern times. With all the depth, clarity and drama with which he traced the Rothschild's ascent, Ferguson shows how their power waned as conflicts from Crimea to the Second World War repeatedly threatened the stability of their worldwide empire, and how their failure to establish themselves successfully in the United States would prove fateful. At once a classic family saga and a major work of economic, social and political history, this is the definitive biography of some of the most powerful financiers of recent times.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This thorough, long, and orderly history of the Rothschild banking dynasty is a deeply traditional business history text. It's full of coherent details, narrated clearly. There are thousands of footnotes, and a huge bibliography. As reference material, I'm sure it's flawless. It's obvious that the author accomplished his goal. But I wished for one meal described, one suit of clothes worn, one grand (or not-so-grand) apartment described. Alas, none of this is included in this story. Pitifully few tidbits flesh out this text. It's business history set against a background of world history, but neither the motivations nor the humanness of the Rothschilds is part of the picture. Ultimately, it disappoints.

After reading the numerous glowing reviews I thought I would enter a story about a fascinating family during a turbulent period in history. Instead I felt as though I was reading a financial piece. Too much detail. I kept looking for the book to breakout and read like the reviews.It is rare that I do not finish a book but after 220 pages I gave up.

The last two chapters of this book zing along like the first part, "Money's Prophets." That volume was fascinating for the way it made financial history a story of personalities and social trends. This volume gets bogged down in the middle in British political history. You learn in excruciating detail about the Rothschild's involvement with Liberal and Tory politicians. But their social role gets buried.

The book had many facts and details that broke up the pace of the book for me. The author appears to be the first writer who has gained access to much of the Rothchild's historical records. He then has so many facts that any future writer of this family will have to footnote him till their big toe hurts. I have found Ron Chernow books well documented and that they read like a novel rather than a High School text book.

HASH(0x9d8f2300) von 5 Sternen un-dumbed down 19. Oktober 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
let me begin by saying that i am not in the habit of handing out five stars in my reviews, but this fine book certainly deserves it. i am not quite sure what to make of some of the criticisms leveled at this book in the reviews until now--too many facts, overly exhaustive, too much about continental finances or politics? can a definitive work of non-fiction have too many facts or be too exhaustive? what meaning do the rothschilds have if not in the context of continental politics. i loved every one of those three qualities about this book and, to boot, though it was appallingly well written as well. i found ferguson exhiliratingly (is this an adverb? it ought to be one) willing to assume that i could assimilate mass amounts of data, only sometimes arcane, and still want to follow a linear, only sometimes, social history--that's what definitive works are all about, i think. i applaud ferguson's not dumbing down history. and perhaps that is the difference between those who very much this book and those who didn't. i wanted to read history, and got it; others, perhaps, wanted to read a good yarn and didn't.

HASH(0x9d902750) von 5 Sternen NOT the Real Story of this Family 17. Juni 2015
Von Graham James - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Since "Empire" I have been a devoted reader and viewer of Ferguson's work. With "The House of Rothscild" he has sold out. I think this work was commissioned by the family. In the last 50 pages the author tells us that the family's fortunes have dwindled and he implies they have had their day. Their association with J, P Morgan & Co. Kuen Loeb, Schiff and the Warburgs and the creation of the Federal Reserve are not covered.

Ferguson states that the Rothschilds missed putting their stamp on the USA. He doesn't cover their American agents who were operating before the Civil War, nor their rescue of the Bank of England and subsequent granting of Bank of England shares.

A shame this is not the real story. Shame on the author for being "paid off".

Ferguson insults the purchaser of the Penguin Paperback by omitting the bibliography and only providing sketchy footnotes. "Serious scholars" who desire these items are advised to buy the Harcover edition. Other than that, it is a good read

Von Albert Broder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

A very complete book, a mine of facts but the author was unable to sort what is important from miscellaneous. The mix of general european history, business history and family events is by moments as indigestible as porridge por a non-scot.

HASH(0x9d904c30) von 5 Sternen like old correspondence 14. August 2014
Von Dennis Rutzou - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A fascinating story, but very heavy on detail and light on the characters involved, except for Natty who was more drawn out, which may have been because there was more resource material available to draw on, like old correspondence. I am sure the author would have liked some diaries as well. But thanks to this book I now have a vague understanding of the way the bond market for countries operates which was a mystery to me before. But I was looking for more about the people although there was a lot of detail about the stats which were very hard (impossible) to read in the Kindle format so I had to skip and go forward.
My suspicion is that this book is aimed as the business economics degree market and not at the popular reader, which is me.
