From two award winning Wall Street journalists, this is the story of the largest corporate takeover in American history.

Product Description:

If this was a boardroom thriller it would be difficult to believe. But it's the true story of the £25 billion battle for the control of a company. RJR Nabisco became a symbol of the financial greed of the 1980s.

This book reveals the surprising truth behind a Wall Street gamble which sent shock waves through the international business world.

Review:

"The most bizarre financial mock-epic of our age. Read it open-mouthed; wonder and shudder." ( Independent)

"All the suspense of a first-rate thriller - one of the finest, most compelling accounts of what happened to corporate America and Wall Street in the 1980s." ( New York Times Book Review)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 204 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The fight to control RJR Nabisco during October and November of 1988 was more than just the largest takeover in Wall Street history. Marked by brazen displays of ego not seen in American business for decades, it became the high point of a new gilded age, and its repercussions are still being felt. The ultimate story of greed and glory, Barbarians at the Gate is the gripping account of these two frenzied months, of deal makers and publicity flaks, of an old-line industrial powerhouse that became the victim of the ruthless and rapacious style of finance in the 1980s. Written with the bravado of a novel and researched with the diligence of a sweeping cultural history, here is the unforgettable story of the takeover in all its brutality.
