Summary
  • "Deals of the Century takes an in-depth look at the most notable merger and acquisition deals of the twentieth century - and the role Wall Street played in each of them. Beginning with J.P. Morgan's acquisition of Carnegie Steel in 1901 to form U.S. Steel, renowned business historian and bestselling author Charles Geisst traces the deals that have had the most dramatic impact on the worlds of both finance and industry over the past century
  • Decade by decade, you'll be introduced to the personalities behind each event, as industries are built, dismantled, and reorganized by "professionals" driven mainly by the profits extracted from the deals themselves more than by the long-term effects."--Jacket
