Paul Strathern studied philosophy at Trinity College, Dublin. He has lectured in philosophy and mathematics.

An excellent history...an entertaining, if ultimately dispiriting tale of the rise and fall of an ambitious banking family

*Sunday Telegraph*

A great overview of one family's centuries-long role in changing the face of Europe
