about

Two fascinating fictions."-Wall Street Journal "Rich and intriguing."-Kirkus Reviews onThe Last of All Possible Worlds "Convincing and haunting."-Publishers Weekly onThe Temptation to Do Good Best-selling author Peter F. Drucker wrote just two novels. Here for the first time in paperback are both. InThe Last of All Possible Worlds, royalty, bankers, lovers, and wives intertwine to create a vivid portrait of Europe in the early 1900s. We meet wise and worldly Prince Sobieski, Vienna's ambassador in London, his enchanting wife, her English lover, and her enigmatic lifelong companion, Josefa. When Sobieski's illegitimate daughter makes a demand of her influential father, the unspoken rules of the family are challenged. Sobieski's world is further upset when two powerful merchant bankers, the tragic McGregor Hinton and the ambitious Julius von Mosenthal, arrive in London-both with their own requirements of the prince. The Temptation to Do Good tells the story of Father Heinz Zimmerman, the well-regarded president of an American Catholic university. When he attempts to help a chemistry teacher who has been denied tenure he accidentally opens the door to the underlying tensions in the university. Peter F. Drucker (1909?2005) was a writer, teacher, and management consultant. Born and raised in Austria, he lived in Germany and England before immigrating to the United States in 1937. His thirty-nine books have been published in more than thirty languages and have sold tens of millions of copies worldwide. His writing and teaching were unique for their focus on the human impact of business decisions. Drucker was the Honorary Chairman of the Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. "
