9780582432581: Barbarians at the Gate (Penguin Readers (Graded Readers))

If this was a boardroom thriller it would be difficult to believe. But it's the true story of the GBP25 billion battle for the control of a company. RJR Nabisco became a symbol of the financial greed of the 1980s. This book reveals the surprising truth behind a Wall Street gamble which sent shock waves through the international business world.

From the Back Cover:

Over six months on the New York Times bestseller list, Barbarians at the Gate is the definitive account of the largest takeover in Wall Street history. Bryan Burrough and John Helyar's gripping record of the frenzy that overtook Wall Street in October and November of 1988 is the story of deal makers and pulicity flaks, of strategy meetings and society dinners, of boardrooms and bedrooms, giving us not only an unprecedentedly detailed look at how financial operations at the highest levels are conducted but also a richly textured social history of wealth at the twilight of the Reagan era. As compelling as a novel, Barbarians at the Gate is must reading for everyone interested in the way today's world really works.

About the Author:

Bryan Burrough is a special correspondent at Vanity Fair and the author of five books.



John Helyar is a columnist for Bloomberg News. He previously wrote for the Wall Street Journal, Fortune, and ESPN, and is the author of Lords of the Realm: The Real History of Baseball.
