Does victory always go to the richest of the great powers? Or are financial markets the true 'masters' of the modern world?" "With the analytical boldness and the grasp of dazzling detail for which he is now famous, Ferguson offers a fascinating account of the evolution of today's economic and political landscape, from 'sleaze' to the single currency.
