    This is a workmanlike biography of a family the Rothschilds, whose financial accomplishments were extraordinary for the time The book is functionally written, not elegantly so But the information and detail makes this a fine work Regrettably, the book was published some time ago It would be nice to see where the family is today But that is a mere c...

    Suffering with complete ignorance of the Rothschilds and mild curiosity about them, I picked this one to learn And I did.The original patriarch, Mayer Amschel Rothschild, started the family business of banking in Frankfurt in the 1760 s His sons and grandsons proliferated the bank s branches to include London, Paris, Naples, and Vienna, where they became the leading banking houses in each location but always operated as a famil...

    There are no poor Rothschilds, only Rothschilds who are richer than other Rothschilds When you re in the right place at the right time, and you make your money by being indispensable to friends in high places without attempting to compete with them This is a family of staggering achievement and immense influence The story of the development of the Rothschild merchant bank from arising in the late 1700s is really quite amazing, and so many of the pivotal moments of the last two hundred years There are no poor Rothschilds, only Rothschilds who are richer than other Rothschilds When you re in the right place at the right time, and you make your money by being indispensable to friends in high places without attempting to compete with them This is a family of staggering achievement and immense influence The story of the development of the Rothschild merchant bank from arising in the late 1700s is really quite amazing, and so many of the pivotal moments of the last two hundred years of European history were directly influenced by this close knit family They seemed to be everywhere in Europe, pulling the financial puppet strings behind major events and personalities Given the multiple intermarriages of generations of Rothschilds, the inclusion of a family tree would have served th...

    The Rothschilds A Family of Fortune every wealthy and old family the Rothschilds are surrounded by numerous rumors and unconfirmed stories From the idea that they control the world through their vast wealth still not proven to the story that they knew the outcome of the Waterloo battle before the British Government true they are one of the most hated and admired families alive Back in the 18th century an uneducated Jew of the name of Mayer Rot The Rothschilds A Family of Fortune every wealthy and old family the Rothschilds are surrounded by numerous rumors and unconfirmed stories From the idea that they control the world through their vast wealth still not proven to the story that they knew the outcome of the Waterloo battle before the British Government true they are one of the most hated and admired families alive Back in the 18th century an uneducated Jew of the name of Mayer Rothschild living in the poor ghetto of Frankfurt set to conquer the merchant and banking world For me it was quite a revelation that Jews were as hate...

    The info is new to me and interesting enough as interesting as a history of Europe and Israel in the last two centuries can be, when told from the perspective of bankers.However, the writing is poor, the organization is sloppy and achronological, and the last chap...

    I had started reading The House of Morgans and decided to finish this one instead I thought the rise of the Rothchilds will beexciting to read and also it happened at an earlier time than the Morgans The first half of the bo...

    Being published 44 years ago, it a wildly out of date Interesting though to find out how the European banking dynasty started and how they spread over Europe A bit dry in places and a family tree would have helped as there were so many of them.

    The amount of research that went into this book is truly staggering.Not everyone will enjoy The Rothschilds but for those of us with an interest in finance and history, it is a gem It is not an easy read largely because of the Rothschilds rules about not marrying outside of the family One reviewer commented that it would have been easier to read had there been a family tree There might be some truth in that but with cousins repeatedly marrying cousins you would have needed a skilled drafts pe The amount of research that went into this book is truly staggering.Not everyone will enjoy The Rothschilds but for those of us with an interest in finance and history, it is a gem It is not an easy read largely because of the Rothschilds rules about not marrying outside of the family One reviewer commented that it would have been easier to read had there been a family tree There might be some truth in that but with cousins repeatedly marrying cousins you would have needed a skilled drafts person to come up with something remotely understanda...

    A very pedestrian and really quite uninspired biography of the Rothschilds The facts are all there, and the research has obviously been painstaking and thorough, but none of the family come alive and in fact I found it hard to really distinguish one from another The author seems to think they are all equally praiseworthy And although I am well aware that the Rothschilds are famous for their financial skills, reading about each and every deal they have ever made became increasingly tedious I A very pedestrian and really quite uninspired biography of the Rothschilds The facts are all there,...

    Hmmmm 3 or 4 stars Although choppy and written rather haphazardly it is definitely informative if you know nothing about the Rothschilds Sweeping a large time frame it is a quick read that gives a birds eye view of the family and their rise in European history It will lay to rest some of the conspiracies that so many choose to believe and yet surprise you with others that you may not of known.Being Jewish in this time frame was restrictive and I found it astounding how, when banding together Hmmmm 3 or 4 stars Although choppy and written rather haphazardly it is definitely informative if you know nothing about the Rothschilds Swee...
