Description
Information
The Carlyle Group is one of the largest private equity firms in the world with over $13 billion in funds. Carlyle's investments include everything from defense contractors to telecommunications and aerospace companies. But there is more to this company than meets the eye.

Carlyle's executives include heavyweights from the worlds of business and politics, such as former secretary of defense and CIA deputy director Frank Carlucci, former secretary of state James Baker III, former President George Bush, former UK Prime Minister John Major, and former chairman of the SEC Arthur Levitt. Osama Bin Laden's estranged family was personally invested in the group until recently.

In this book, journalist David Briody examines a company at the nexus of big business, government, and defense that, according to some sources, epitomises corporate cronyism, conflicts of interest, and war profiteering. This fascinating examination leads readers into a world that few can imagine - full of clandestine meetings, quid pro quo deals, bitter ironies, and petty jealousies.
