The Rise of the French Rothschilds. 223 pp. New York: The Vendome Press. The upward movement of the Rothschilds in the first half of the 19th century is the equivalent in financial and social terms of a blastoff at the Kennedy Space Center. The sums of money are colossal. Anka Muhlstein is that rare thing in the 1980's - a biographer who travels light. Where others have trouble coming in under 700 pages, Miss Muhlstein's life of Queen Victoria had the proportions, give or take a whisker, of Lytton Strachey's slender masterpiece. Her new book ranges the length and breadth of Europe.

Reviews: 2
This book, written by a descendant of the Baron de Rothschild, was probably published because the author was related. It is more a compendium of anecdotes that more weighty biographers might have omitted for their anecdotal slightness, than a true biography. However lovingly written, however light, nevertheless we are missing how great and important facts of how the Rothschilds' investments in Africa and elsewhere outside of Europe and in, did influence the course of history: we are missing facts and factors about their partnerships not only in diamonds, cordite, oil, etc etc etc. We read more instead of the wondrously imperial life-style such as their sending their best and rarest Sevres to the catered opening of a Metro station in Paris. Fine, but what was happening across the world at that time, and in France itself to fear or celebrate? We are left to dine on with a hundred-year old glass of wine in our notational hands, a goblet already drained to the dregs. Not a great book. It is one thing to provide the money to build a famous hospital. It is another thing to run the emergency room. And yet a third to be in it as a patient. And yet a fourth to have been the workman with his pickax cracking open stone to sink the pilings. Not one word of any of that. Not one word.
Outstanding! No rips tears or marks. Save an autograph from Anka. If it's legit.
