From the Back Cover:

The First Behind-the-Scenes Account of the Rise and Fall of Wall Street's Family Financial Empires

Morgan Stanley ... Goldman Sachs ... Kidder Peabody ... Lehman Brothers ... These firms lay America's financial foundations and fueled her grandiose dreams. Through a combination of financial genius, political muscle, and old-world tenacity, these Wall Street partnerships wielded unprecedented influence over the landscape of 19th and 20th century America. With rigorous scholarship and fascinating stories, The Last Partnerships relives the formative years of American finance and reveals an account both global in its scope and distinctly human in its character.

"Geisst's chronicle of runaway greed and phenomenal success provides a captivating and unique picture of the secret deals, monumental transactions, colorful characters, earth-shaking plummets and exuberant highs of the most famous street in the world."--Accounting Today

"Geisst's comprehensive history of Wall Street qualifies as a major reference work on the subject."--Fort-Worth Star Telegram

"The Last Partnerships is ... an enormously enjoyable read."--United Press International
