It is one of the world's great fortunes, the empire founded by Sam Bronfman and carried on through his family, a kingdom worth more than $7 billion nurtured on bootleg alcohol and sustained through decades of deals, scandals, legal explosions and intrafamily warfare. At its heart is the Seagram Company Ltd., the world's largest distilling operation, responsible for more than one million bottles of liquor per day sold in the U.S. alone, but its reach stretches far beyond that--to oil companies, hotels, mines, factories and real estate all over the world. Except that they are almost certainly richer and without a doubt more secretive, the Bronfmans have become the Rothschilds of the New World, and here at last is the extraordinary story of their lives, times and turbulent fortunes, chronicled by best-selling journalist Peter C. Newman. -- From publisher's description
