"It is one of the world's great fortunes, the empire founded by Sam Bronfman and carried on through his family, a kingdom worth more than $7 billion nurtured on bootleg alcohol and sustained through decades of deals, scandals, legal explosions and interfamily warfare. At its heart is the Seagram Company Ltd., the world's largest distilling operation, responsible for more than one million bottles of liquor per day sold in the U.S. alone, but it also reaches far beyond that - to oil companies, hotels, mines, factories and real estate all over the world." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor bump to top edge of both boards, minor fading at top/bottom edges of boards.
