The first scholar with unrestricted access to the surviving Rothschild archives, Niall Ferguson has produced a two volume history that reveals in absorbing detail the phenomenal economic success of this fascinating and secretive family. Ever since the house of Rothschild first rose to pre-eminence in the turbulent era of the Napoleonic wars, mythology has surrounded the family and its firms. They have been charged with financing revolutions and counter-revolutions and have been seen as the final arbiters of war and peace in Europe.
