(From the publisher):
The $7-billion dynasty...
Shrewd, feisty Sam Bronfman founded the dynasty. The Bronfmans are the Rothschilds of the New World - except that they are richer. And even more secretive. Unlike the European banking family which spun its fortune in precious metal, the Bronfman Dynasty holds a commanding position in the two great liquids that fuel the modern world: whisky. And oil.
Mr. Sam has opinions on everything. To his son: "Tell me, Edgar, are we buying all this stock in MGM just so you can get laid?" To his cousin, Gerald: "Listen, I don't get ulcers, I give them." To the world: "Nobody can be a friend of mine if I can't call him an S.O.B."
Charles, the current power behind the throne, lives in a $2-million dollar house. Edgar, a New York jet-setter, runs the empire from Park Avenue. Peter is the shyest millionaire in the country. Mitch leads a James Bond existence. Phyllis lives in a restored peanut factory. Minda is a Parisian baroness. The Bronfmans are just a little bit more colorful than other first families.
