Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Dethroning the King makes for a fine yarn with a cautionary message about American business in the age of globalization."
—The New York Times

Praise for
DETHRONING THE KING

"Julie MacIntosh has given us not just an anatomy of a deal, but an anatomy of a company, a community, and a family. From cover to cover, it is a compelling story bound to be acclaimed as the business book of the year."
MARTIN LIPTON, Founding Partner of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

"This book is not just a terrific read about the decline of a storied American company. It is also an acute analysis that conveys important lessons about the ills of American business in general."
BRUCE GREENWALD, Robert Heilbrunn Professor of Finance and Asset Management, Columbia Business School

"Dethroning the King is hard to put down—it's a must-read. Julie MacIntosh vividly captures the many twists and turns of this company's long history and the fascinating people who shaped its development."
NELSON PELTZ, CEO and Founding Partner, Trian Fund Management, LP

"In this powerful story, Julie MacIntosh does a great job of giving life to an epoch corporate event and the story of a legendary family. The parallels with today's ongoing corporate conflicts are many. The tale is fascinating and remains relevant."
ROBERT F. GREENHILL, Founder and Chairman, Greenhill & Co., Inc.

Julie MacIntosh, the author of Dethroning the King and an award-winning journalist, led the Financial Times' coverage of the takeover of Anheuser-Busch as its U.S. Mergers and Acquisitions Correspondent. She also covered the fall of Lehman Brothers, the government takeovers of AIG, General Motors and Chrysler, and the near-collapse of the global banking system while on the mergers beat at the FT and, before that, wrote as a columnist for the newspaper's highly influential Lex opinion page.

MacIntosh, who is now based in Los Angeles, has also worked as a reporter and correspondent for Reuters, and in 2003 was named one of NewsBios' "Top 30 Business Journalists Under 30." She won a Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in business journalism at Columbia University and earned a master's in journalism from Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism. After receiving the competitive Wiegers Fellowship, she then earned a master's of business administration from Columbia's Graduate School of Business. She received her undergraduate degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
