Description

Winner of the National Book Award and now considered a classic, The House of Morgan is the most ambitious history ever written about an American banking dynasty. Acclaimed by the Wall Street Journal as "brilliantly researched and written," the book tells the rich, panoramic story of four generations of Morgans and the powerful, secretive firms they spawned. It is the definitive account of the rise of the modern financial world.

A gripping history of banking and the booms and busts that shaped the world on both sides of the Atlantic, The House of Morgan traces the trajectory of the J. P. Morgan empire from its obscure beginnings in Victorian London to the crash of 1987. Ron Chernow paints a fascinating portrait of the private saga of the Morgans and the rarefied world of the American and British elite in which they moved. Based on extensive interviews and access to the family and business archives, The House of Morgan is an investigative masterpiece, a compelling account of a remarkable institution and the men who ran it, and an essential book for understanding the money and power behind the major historical events of the last 150 years.

reviews
      • premium: False
      • source: New York Times Book Review
      • content: "As a portrait of finance, politics, and the world of avarice and ambition on Wall Street, the book has the movement and tension of an epic novel. It is, quite simply, a tour de force."
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Why would a listener devote more than 34 hours to the history of a bank? Even with Robertson Dean's capable reading and eminently listenable voice, that's a long time--unless you have an interest in the American financial system and how it got to be the way it is. The House of Morgan and its components (some have changed since the book was written in 1990) dominated and sometimes shaped our economy for more than a hundred years. There are too many characters for Dean to make them all clearly distinguishable, but he keeps the story moving forward. There may be better sources for the biographies of the Morgan family, but this audiobook lays the groundwork for an understanding of modern finance. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
