About this title


 "It has been estimated that 80 percent of household wealth in the United States is derived from inheritance. This is the first study of now Americans over three centuries- from the 1700s to the 1980s- have distributed that wealth. The authors focus on the relationship between the inheritance process and changes in capitalism and the structure of the family." FINE- SOFTCOVER
