A. Craig Copetas is a staff reporter at the Wall Street Journal and the author of Bear Hunting with the Politburo.From Library Journal:
Marc Rich is one of the most successful traders of metals and other minerals. He is also now living in Switzerland, wanted in the United States for tax evasion. While Copetas's book is ostensibly about Rich and his questionable dealings, it also gives a fairly interesting account of the metals trading industry itself: individualistic, barely regulated, tense, fast-paced, potentially lucrative, and often shady. The character and atmosphere of Phillip Brothers, the trading house where Rich got his start, and of Rich's own firm are nicely contrasted and delineated. Neither Rich nor the metal trading industry come off very well. For larger business collections. Stuart Gudowitz, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.
