About the Author:

Stephen Birmingham is a preeminent social historian, known for his books The Right People, Real Lace, and The Grandees. He allows his reader unparalleled access to the most exclusive society sets, and tells their stories with great warmth and wit.

From Library Journal:

The latest work by Birmingham ( Our Crowd ), chronicler of America's upper classes, this focuses on leading upper-class families from the 18th century to the present. Although a bit disjointed, Birmingham's work is lively and based on research into family documents and interviews with current family members. It is divided into three parts: a history of some of the leading 18th- and 19th-century Eastern families, e.g., the Livingstons, Jays, Randolphs, and Roosevelts; a study of the elite families of America's leading cities; and a look at these families in the 20th century, including recent eccentric family members and the current status of the Jay and Livingston families whose account began the work. A popular, entertaining history for public and academic libraries. BOMC alternate. Louis Vyhnanek, Washington State Univ. Lib . , Pullman
