Empire: A Tale of Obsession, Betrayal, & the Battle for an American Icon
Mitchell Pacelle (au). The Empire State Building is the most famous skyscraper in the world. Yet few are aware of the triumphs & tragedies that have played out in its storied corridors. This is a gripping account of a frenzied decade-long contest for control of Americaís premier skyscraper. Pacelle takes us behind the scenes in a bizarre drama of greed, rivalry, duplicity, & betrayal. Taking advantage of extensive access to key players, he traces the saga from the boardroom where an intricate ownership web was spun to the time-warped world of a Japanese tycoon; from castles in Britain to jail cells in N.Y. & France. He offers a rare glimpse into the era of old-world real estate tycoons, & explores the culture clash that erupted when the new guard rose to challenge them. Photos.
