BOOKS
February 9, 1997 | DAVID LANDAU, David Landau is the author of "Piety and Power: The World of Jewish Fundamentalism" (Hill and Wang)
This is a fine, well-researched and elegantly written book--if you have the time and strength to read through its nearly 700 pages. It is packed with facts about the financial empire of the fascinating Reichmann family, from its humble origins in 18th century rural Hungary to its transformation into one of the 20th century's wealthiest, most philanthropic Jewish families.

The bankruptcy filing by Olympia & York might well keep alive the world's largest real estate company, but it represents a once-unthinkable descent for one of the most mysterious and successful business enterprises of modern times. The Reichmann brothers, Paul, Ralph and Albert, offspring of World War II refugees from Europe who settled here in the 1950s, turned a small family tile-importing business into a huge, privately held empire in real estate, oil and timber once valued at $31 billion.
