Product Description

Wrong Way is a story of corporate intrigue, backroom dealings, share-holder activism--and the spectacular fall from grace of newspaper tycoon Conrad Black, who, through his company Hollinger International, owned London's Telegraph, the Chicago Sun Times, and the Jerusalem Post, among many others. The cast of characters reads like a playlist of the world's business, political, and social elites--from Black himself and his glamorous wife, Barbara Amiel, to former British Prime Minisher Margaret Thatcher and Hollinger directors Henry Kissinger, Alfred Taubman (the jailed former chairman of Sotherby's), and Richard Perle (former chairman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board). Up against the defiant Black are such powerful players as Richard Breeden, former head of the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission, and the two Tweedy Browne investment analysts who led the charges against Black and Hollinger Inc., the parent company of Hollinger International.

Tautly written and fast-paced, Wrong Way is a corporate thriller that chronicles the excesses of a larger-than-life entrepreneur whose autocratic temperament and management style would prove to be his undoing. It is a testament to the rise of shareholder activism and a cautionary tale of corporate cronyism at its worst.

Jacquie McNish has been a journalist for twenty-three years. She was a financial reporter for the Wall Street Journal and is currently a Senior Writer for The Globe and Mail.

Sinclair Stewart is a financial reporter for The Globe and Mail.
