Rothchild tells the incredible story of Robert Campeau's rise and fall, from his acquisition of major department store chains with $11 billion in loans the banks were all too eager to give, to his demise, when the overwhelming debt, coupled with eccentric management practices, drove him into bankruptcy. A fitting epilogue to the money-mad "Era of Debt"--a story of bankers who bent the rules of lending until they broke. Photographs.
