    One thought on “The Man Who Robbed the Robber Barons”

    1. This is a odd little gem of a book. Someone should actually make it into a film. It's got a muckraking angle, a courtroom drama, plus lots of celebrity rich people acting badly--and getting called on it. I just spent five days looking through TOWN TOPICS, the "journal of society" edited by Col. William d'Alton Mann, and I wish this crazy example of a newspaper was more widely available.
