A century ago, J. P. Morgan was the organizing force behind General Electric, U.S. Steel, and vast railroad empires. He served as America's unofficial banker and a few months after he died in 1913, the Federal Reserve replaced the private system he had devised. An early supporter of Edison and Carnegie, confidant and rival of Theodore Roosevelt and England's Edward Vll, he shaped the world in countless ways. This book was the first full-scale portrait of Morgan and is drawn from archives and historical accounts in vivid detail. It recounts the ways Morgan played a role in the U.S. economy, reorganized bankrupt railroads, stabilized markets in times of crisis, and set up many of the corporate and financial structures we now know. It also gives readers insight into his childhood and early career.
