Summary
"Since their arrival in the United States from Germany in 1866, the Morgenthaus have been a linchpin in American history -- losing everything only to grow rich again, assimilating, and then climbing to the country's highest ranks of power. In the words of former Mayor Ed Koch, they are "the closest thing we've got to royalty in New York City." With unprecedented, exclusive access to family archives, award-winning journalist Andrew Meier chronicles this epic American story, revealing how the Morgenthaus amassed enormous wealth, advised presidents, shaped the New Deal, decried mass murder during the Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust, waged war in the Mediterranean and Pacific, and built a dynasty that would remake the city of New York"--
