9780141022017: High Financier: The Lives and Time of Siegmund Warburg

Niall Ferguson' High Financier tells the extraordinary story of Siegmund Warburg, the refugee from Nazi Germany who restored the Blitz-shattered City of London as the world's preeminent international financial centre.

Seared by events in the 1930s, when the long-established Warburg bank was first almost destroyed by the Depression and then 'Aryanized' by the Nazis, Siegmund Warburg was determined that his own bank would learn from the past and contribute to the economic recovery of Britain, the unity of Western Europe and the birth of globalization.

In recounting how this brilliant, scholarly man brought wit, passion and, above all, high ethical standards to the world of finance, Niall Ferguson shows how his meticulous methods were the antithesis of the debt-fuelled, speculative banking of our times.

'A fascinating portrait ... Beautifully paced, dramatically subtle and psychologically shrewd ... Warburg is an emblem of money as it ought to be, and now isn't'
  Bryan Appleyard, New Statesman

'Extensively researched and beautifully written'
  Spectator

'A timely, original and engaging biography'
  The Times

'Financially literate, extremely thorough, deploying dazzling breadth of cultural reference ... Ferguson has produced a fine historical biography'
  Mail on Sunday

Book Description:

Beautifully paced, dramatically subtle and psychologically shrewd, this is Ferguson at his finest (Peter Stormonth Darling Spectator)

Ferguson is a talented writer, capable of grace and insight, but it is his ability as a historian that shows most strongly in High Financier (T. J. Stiles The Washington Post Sunday)

Its many finance lessons aside, High Financier is a pleasure to read simply as a work of literary skill. It is not only prodigiously researched but also splendidly written-clear and vivid and precise, perhaps even of enough merit to satisfy a word-stickler like Siegmund Warburg ( Wall Street Journal)

A timely, original and engaging biography of Siegmund Warburg (Sathnam Sanghera The Times)

This book is both a notable contribution to economic history and a fascinating portrait (Geoffrey Owen Telegraph)

About the Author:

Niall Ferguson is one of Britain's most renowned historians and the author of a sequence of bestselling books, the most recent being The Ascent of Money and Civilization.
