Barbarians at the gate : the fall of RJR Nabisco

By Burrough, Bryan and John Helyar.

New York: Harper & Row, 1990. "The most bizarre financial mock-epic of our age. Read it open-mouthed; wonder and shudder." - "Independent". This is the story of the largest corporate take-over in American history. With a stake of $25 billion, the battle for the control of RJR Nabisco during October and November 1988 became a symbol of the greed and power-mongering of the eighties. This gripping narrative reveals the truth behind a Wall Street gamble that sent shock waves through the international business world. The rules were simple: never pay in cash - never tell the truth - never play by the rules. "All the suspense of a first-rate thriller - one of the finest, most compelling accounts of what happened to corporate America and Wall Street in the 1980s." - "New York Times Book Review". For their coverage of the RJR Nabisco take-over, Burrough and Helyar received the prestigious Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. Review: 'The most bizarre financial mock-epic of our age. Read it open-mouthed; wonder and shudder.' Independent" A fine copy in a like Dust Jacket: p.xvi, 528, index, illustrations. [ Location: Dark Oak BR1 ] . First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
