About

Overview

The third volume of the Working Americans: 1800-1999 series, The Upper Class explores the lives of the very rich, focusing on those in the top 5 percent of America’s income level, including what they spent their money on, their ability to influence their communities, build companies through the timely infusion of capital, as well as their desire to party in Palm Beach or associate with the Dukes, Astors and Vanderbilts. Volume III: The Upper Class includes families whose only concern is making money, families whose only wish is to spend it and even some who are on the verge of losing the status often bestowed by wealth through bankruptcy.
