Billions of dollars were at stake.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Tim Bouquet was the first British journalist to write a major profile of Mittal, while Byron Ousey was a PR adviser to the Luxembourg government, one of Arcelor's biggest shareholders.

As this book shows, money and business logic prevailed in the end over politics and protection. - The Economist
