The strands come together in the person of Arthur Guinness, an 18th century entrepreneur who was to beer what Mayer Rothschild was to bonds. In this smart, good-humored, always-engaging book, Mansfield makes a quietly serious case for the essential role that faith has played not only in the Guinnesses’ success but also in the evolution of democratic capitalism.”
