The Grandes Dames : The wonderfully uninhibited ladies who used their wealth & position to create American culture in their own images-from the Gilded Age to Modern Times Paperback / softback

Description

The Grandes Dames of America knew just what they wanted and precisely how to get it, and when faced with criticism, malice or jealousy, they would rise above their detractors and usually persevere.

Preeminent social historian Stephen Birmingham takes us into the drawing rooms of these powerful women, providing keen insights into aspects of an American Society that no longer exists.
