In this unique, well-illustrated book, readers learn how fifty financial corporations came to dominate the U.S. banking system and their impact on the nation's political, social, and economic growth. A story that spans more than two centuries of war, crisis, and opportunity, this account reminds readers that American banking was never a fixed enterprise but has evolved in tandem with the country. More than 225 years have passed since Alexander Hamilton created one of the nation's first commercial banks. Over time, these institutions have changed hands, names, and locations, reflecting a wave of mergers, acquisitions, and other restructuring efforts that echo changes in American finance. Some names, such as Bank of America and Wells Fargo, will be familiar to readers. The origins of others, including Zions Bancorporation, founded by Brigham Young and owned by the Mormon Church until 1960, are surprising. Exploring why some banks failed and others thrived, this book wonders, in light of the 2008 financial crisis, whether recent consolidations have reached or even exceeded economically rational limits. A key text for navigating the complex terrain of American finance, this volume draws a fascinating family tree for projecting the financial future of a nation.<br /> Review:<br /> Genealogy of American Finance is sure to motivate interesting conversation, whether around a coffee table or in a classroom. Its strength comes from its breadth and level of detail--the scope of this genealogical approach has not been previously undertaken, and the fact that it manages to remain balanced and engaging is impressive. -- Matt Jaremski, Colgate University Genealogy of American Finance is a treasure trove of information on American banking and its history, in an unusual--and unusually useful--format. -- John Steele Gordon, author of Empire of Wealth: The Epic History of American Economic Power Wright and Sylla have produced an extremely valuable edition on the history of the fifty institutions central to American economic life. I highly recommended it to anyone with an interest in business history. -- Charles R. Geisst, author of Wall Street: A History and Beggar Thy Neighbor A treasure-trove history of America's top banks.
