5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gorgeous photographs... 9 janvier 2010

...and a load of info about these people/families in general. The cover is stunning, and what is on the inside is almost like unlocking the doors of these secluded lives that are being lived behind the closed gilded doors. If you are interested in these great and uniquely 'American' lives, then you must see what is in this book.

It is worth the attention.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Colorful concoction of social anecdotes with author's own "intepretation" 12 février 2009
Par Wong Yee Na - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
On the whole, this is an enjoyable read when you are curious about "Society" and it's alleged "history". No wonder it's written by a historian, and a Brit as well (well, to my knowledge Brits' is one of the most class conscious culture ever).

What you will find is an attempt to string a storyline of what is considered "society", namely the rich and the famous, and their social habits/expectaions (for instance, there is a chapter on "A woman's place") through out, from the colonial times to the turn of the century.

The reason I give it a 3 stars instead of higher is because that was it, the story is somewhat unclear and incomplete when it deals with the present day "society": "Expresso Society" is sketchy at best although I do appreciate the commentary about how Women's place has been expanded from the mere "interior decoration" and "charities foundation boards" to the men's arena are now considered as "actively desirable". How times has changed for women!

Truman Capote's "ascent" to "social greatness" can be elaborated on more as that was one of the jewels of the book's colorful collection of societal anecdotes. ;)

Actually, I purchased this item for a friends birthday. She happens to be a fashionista. I did not read it so I cannot comment on it's importance or value.
