Niall Ferguson is one of the world’s leading historians of the global economy and author of such internationally-acclaimed works as The Pity of War, The Cash Nexus: Money and Power in the Modern World, Empire: The Rise and Demise of the British World Order and the Lessons for Global Power and The War of the World: Twentieth Century Conflict and the Descent of the West. The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World, is an international bestseller and the basis for a multipart television documentary that won the International Emmy Award for best documentary. His most recent book High Financier: The Lives and Time of Siegmund Warburg chronicles the life of one of the world’s most prominent merchant bankers. Controversial, expansive, and eloquent, Ferguson has been called “the most talented British historian of his generation.” But the ambitious themes he explores in his work have urgent relevance to the present as well as the past: the costs and benefits of economic globalization; the interface between finance and politics; the lessons to be learned from the British experience of empire; and most recently, the strengths and limitation of American global power.
