Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

US

Review:

"The award-winning author of The House of Morgan returns with another beautifully wrought, panoramic family saga. Possibly the oldest continuously active banking family in the world, the Warburgs can be traced to the 16th century. A flamboyant clan which entered spheres of culture and politics they were, like other German Jews, 'shipwrecked by history.' Their story, as Morgan explains, is like a Brahms symphony— 'melancholic, sad, but touched with hope, brave and strangely inspiring.'" Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

"This is grand-scale scholarship .... It is all here, along with so much of the painful, tumultuous history of our time, all in one splendid book." David McCullough, author of Truman
