'The irresistible power of money, a lever that can lift the world. Love and money are the only things.'Aristide Rougon, known as Saccard, is a failed property speculator determined to make his way once more in Paris. Unscrupulous, seductive, and with unbounded ambition, he schemes and manipulates his way to power. Financial undertakings in the Middle East lead to the establishment of a powerful new bank and speculation on the stock market; Saccard meanwhile conducts his love life as energetically as he does his business, and his empire is seemingly unstoppable. Saccard, last encountered in The Kill (La Curée) in Zola's Rougon-Macquart series, is a complex figure whose story intricately intertwines the worlds of politics, finance, and the press. The repercussions of his dealings on all levels of society resonate disturbingly with the financial scandals of more recent times. This is the first new translation for more than a hundred years, and the first unabridged translation in English. The edition includes a wide-rangingintroduction and useful historical notes.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

Recenzii

this superb translation ... pulls off the rare double feat of fidelity and fluency.
Much praise to OUP for bringing out this excellent translation by Valerie Minogue, complete with an informative introduction and notes.
I was justifiably excited by this new translation of Emile Zola's novel Money ... Overall the text is fluid and reads as if it were not a translation at all.
