Summary
"Family-run companies have dominated business throughout the last two centuries, yet they have been little studied. In Dynasties, award-winning historian David Landes scrutinizes powerful family businesses in Europe, Japan and America to determine what factors can cause a dynasty to flourish or fail. Focusing on three areas - banking, cars and raw materials - he looks at astonishingly successful families such as the Fords, Rothschilds, Agnellis, Guggenheims, Rockefellers and Toyodas."--BOOK JACKET
