Book Description
On September 15, 2008, Dick Fuld, the last CEO of Lehman Brothers, filed for corporate bankruptcy amid one of the worst financial crises in American history. After 164 years, one of the largest and most respected investment banks in the world was gone, leaving everyone wondering, "How could this have happened?" Peter Chapman, an editor and writer for the Financial Times, answers this question by exploring the complete history of Lehman Brothers between those two historic Septembers. He takes us back to its early days as a cotton broker in Alabama and then to its glory days as one of the leading corporate financiers in America. He also provides an intimate portrait of the people who ran Lehman over teh decades-from Henry Lehman, the founder, to Bobbie Lehman, who led the firm into the world of radio, motion pictures, and air travel in the first part of the twentieth century, to Dick Fuld, who allowed it to morph into a dealer of shoddy securities.
