CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The fight to control RJR Nabisco during October and November of 1988 was more
than just the largest takeover in Wall Street history. Marked by brazen
displays of ego not seen in American business for decades, it became the high
point of a new gilded age, and its repercussions are still being felt. The
ultimate story of greed and glory, Barbarians at the Gate is the gripping
account of these two frenzied months, of deal makers and publicity flaks, of an
old-line industrial powerhouse that became the victim of the ruthless and
rapacious style of finance in the 1980s. Written with the bravado of a novel
and researched with the diligence of a sweeping cultural history, here is the
unforgettable story of the takeover in all its brutality.
