Synopsis: Never in history were greater fortunes made and spent than in the Gilded Age, a period of immense prosperity that lasted in Europe from 1870's through 1914 and in the United States until the Crash of 1929. This beautiful and richly illustrated book traces the rice of the great robber barons around the world, and explains the alchemy by which the Rothschilds, Vanderbilts, Astors and Rockefellers, among others, rose from rags to riches thanks to monopolies, government corruption, or financial skullduggery linked to blinding ambition and a passion for hard work. But the Gilded Age was as much about making fortunes as spending them, and the author entertainingly describes the competitive castle-building, art collecting, and above all social climbing of the newly rich, who aspired to be a new aristocracy while plotting to join the closed circle of the declining ancien regime.
About the Author: Alexis Gregory writes for Vanity Fair, Conde Nast Traveler, Art and Auction and Town and Country. His last book, published by Rizzoli, was Paris de luxe. The Place Vendome.
