the house of rothschild volume 1 by niall ferguson

This economic history of the rothschild family from 1798 to 1848 is as dense and unforgiving as that sounds, and altho it gave me a fascinating look at the give and take of politics and money in that era, as well as a truly unique perspective on the personalities involved in the formation of this dynasty, it was quite challenging to follow all the hundreds of historical figures that the book expected me to already know.
