Description - Gods at War by Steven M. Davidoff

An engaging exploration of modern-day deals and deal-making
Gods at War details the recent deals and events that have
forever changed the world of billion-dollar deal-making. This book
is a whirlwind tour of the players determining the destiny of
corporate America, including the government, private equity,
strategic buyers, hedge funds, and sovereign wealth funds.
It not only examines many of the game-changing takeover events
that have occurred in the past years, but also puts them into
context and exposes what is really going on behind the scenes on
Wall Street. Gods at War completely covers the strategic
issues that guide the modern-day deal, and since they unfold under
the shadow of the law, it also focuses on the legal aspects of
deal-making and takeovers.

Each chapter unfolds through the lens of a recent transaction,
from the battle between Yahoo! and Microsoft to the United
Rental/Cerberus dispute

Provides in-depth explanations and analysis of the events and
actors that have shaped this fast-moving field

Examines the federal government's regulation by deal approach
to saving the financial system and explains the government's
biggest "deals", including its bail-outs of AIG, Bank of America,
and Citigroup

Filled with in-depth insights that will enhance your
understanding of this field, Gods at War offers an engaging
look at deals and deal-makers in the context of recent historical
events. It's a book for those who want to understand deals,
takeovers, and the people and institutions who shape our world.
