Description
History has remembered J. P. Morgan as a complex and contradictory figure, part robber baron and part patron saint. This definitive biography, based extensively on new material, is the first to tell the full story of Morgan's tumultuous life both in and out of the public eye.

Morgan earned his reputation as "the Napoleon of Wall Street" by reorganizing the nation's railroads and creating some of its greatest industrial trusts, including General Electric and U.S. Steel. At a time when America had no Federal Reserve, he appointed himself a one-man central bank. He was married twice, had three yachts, four children, six houses, mistresses, and one of the finest art collections in America. In this extraordinary book, award-winning biographer Jean Strouse vividly recounts Morgan's childhood, his career, and his relationships with his exacting father, his wives and children, business associates, female consorts, and friends. Brilliantly crafted and epic in scope, it reveals a Morgan never seen before, and in doing so, sheds light on the culture, political struggles, and social conflicts of America's Gilded Age.
