Until 1991 the Vestey family had virtually disappeared from the news; from being Britain's wealthiest family they had slipped out of the top ten. Then they made the headlines again, as the older generation, Sam and Edmund, were kicked out and replaced by 30-year-old Tim. The City said that their old-fashioned ways had cost them their share of the meat market; that they could go under - a case of "clogs to clogs" in two generations. This is an updated edition of "The Vestey Affair", Phillip Knightley's account of how the rich handle their money and the means they use to evade tax. Knightley is an award-winning investigative journalist on "The Sunday Times". His other books include "The Oldest Profession" and "Philby: The Life and Views of the KGB Master Spy".
