Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the story of the largest corporate take-over in American history. With a stake of USD25 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 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.
