9780552993777: Wasp, Where is Thy Sting?

(Once upon a time. White Anglo-Saxon Protestants believed that if the rest of the world was littered with ethnics who lacked the social graces, were inadequately educated, and were darker complectioned than was desirable, at least in America. WASPS and their standards governed. But now their ivory tower has been besieged, and WASPS have come to think of themselves as a minority group in a sea of aliens. Florence King has set out on a journey to find out what WASPS really were and are and how and why they think. Like an anthropologist, she provides us with a book of knowledge about WASPS and their habits that is as essential as knowing about the birds and the bees) (Ostensibly collections of essays they frequently turn in fictional pieces, literary burlesques and lampoons, character sketches and autobiographical ruminations)
