9780099469155: Barbarians At The Gate

This is the story of the largest corporate take-over in American history. With a stake of $25 billion, the battle for the control of RJR Nabisco during October and November 1988 became a symbol of the greed and power-mongering of the eighties. This gripping narrative reveals the truth behind a Wall Street gamble that sent shock waves through the international business world. The rules were simple:--NEVER PAY IN CASH--NEVER TELL THE TRUTH--NEVER PLAY BY THE RULES.

"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)
