    Sebastian Mallaby's magisterial biography of Alan Greenspan, the product of over five years of research based on untrammeled access to his subject and his closest professional and personal intimates, brings into vivid focus the mysterious point where the government and the economy meet. To understand Greenspan's story is to see the economic and political landscape of the last 30 years - and the presidency, from Reagan to George W. Bush - in a whole new light.

    This is the biography of one of the titans of financial history over the last 50 years. Born in 1926, Alan Greenspan was raised in Manhattan by a single mother and immigrant grandparents during the Great Depression - but by quiet force of intellect, he rose to become a global financial 'maestro'. Appointed by Ronald Reagan as Chairman of the Federal Reserve, a post he held for 18 years, he presided over an unprecedented period of stability and low inflation.
