Joseph Sassoon will provide a public lecture on his latest work, "The Sassoons: The Great Global Merchants and the Making of an Empire."
A spectacular story, the making of a dynasty, one of the great untold sagas of a gilded Jewish Bagdadi family—the merchant princes of the orient, that built a vast empire through finance and trade: opium, cotton, oil, shipping, banking, that reached across three continents, and ultimately changed the destinies of nations.
Joseph Sassoon is Professor of History and Political Economy at Georgetown's Center for Contemporary Arab Studies and holds the al-Sabah Chair in Politics and Political Economy of the Arab World.
