Summary "Eli Black was the immigrant rabbi-turned-CEO who transformed the notoriously corrupt United Fruit into a model of ethical business. Then he died by suicide. How did it all go wrong? Matt Garcia traces Black's own descent into corruption and despair-the unraveling, and the deliberate forgetting, of one of America's most enigmatic business leaders"-- Provided by publisher.
