About the book Diamond: The History of a Cold-Blooded Love Affair
Діамант: історія бездушної любовної історії | Жодна інша компанія не ототожнюється з діамантами так, як південноафриканська компанія De Beers.
До падіння залізної завіси вони контролювали ринок діамантів. Після падіння – вони і далі контролювали його, так як викупили більшість діамантів колишнього Радянського Союзу. Вони секретні, стримані і дуже, дуже могутні.
Це історія страйку, який засмутив алмазних королів, а разом з цим і історія найвідоміших у світі діамантів, розповідь про процес їх огранки, виготовлення, контрабанди та викрадень, легенди, забобони та персонажі, що з ними пов’язані, і, перш за все, роль загадкових De Beers.

Diamond: The History of a Cold-Blooded Love Affair | No other company is more identified with diamonds than the South African-based De Beers.
Until the collapse of the Iron Curtain they controlled the diamond market. After the collapse, they still controlled it – once they had bought up most of the diamonds emerging from the former Soviet Union. They are secretive, discreet and very, very powerful.
Here is the true story of the strike that upset the diamond kings, and with it the history of the world’s most acclaimed diamonds, the process by which they are cut, fashioned, smuggled and stolen, the legends and superstitions that are attached to them, the characters who comprise the great diamond prospectors and, above all, of the shadowy hand of De Beers for whom diamonds are forever.
