Offers an inside look at the estates, marriages, and financial empires of America's most selective club and fascinating stories about its members: the William Randolphs; the Carillos and Ortegas; Presidents Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt; and the Boston Brahmins.

Going far beyond simply naming names, Birmingham captures the true essence of America's aristocratic families. Birmingham's writing, as always, is smooth and sophisticated (without being either smart-alecky or sychophantic), and, though readers are unlikely to gain any flesh insights into what distinguishes ""America's secret aristocracy,"" other than it apparently has something to do with ""self-esteem,"" they won't be bored either.
