Description
 
Derek Wilson (au). Guinness is a name recognized the world over, associated with beer & banking, glamour, scandal &, above all, success. But just who were & who are the Guinnesses? In the early 19th cent. the first Arthur Guinness demerged from provincial Irish obscurity to set up a brewery. Within a few decades the Guinnesses had taken their place in the Protestant ascendancy while at the same time claiming descent from an aristocratic Catholic house. Such tensions provided the background to the wanderings of the family for generations to come. And for every Guinness who was successful in bus. there was an equally spectacular failure. This is the first comprehensive account of a controversial family which remains resolutely private. B&W illustrations.
