Dynastic family businesses have everything: extraordinary success, bizarre eccentricity, bitter rivalry – as well was pots of money and power. Yet almost no on has looked closely enough to see what it is that really makes them tick.
In Dynasties, award-winning author David Landes casts his eye over some of the most powerful businesses in Europe, Japan and America. On the way he provides thrilling histories of the characters who have made their mark on the world and passed on a legacy – sometimes benign and sometimes not – to their descendants.
