    About this Item: Vintage Books, New York, Softcover. Condition: Fair. pages. Softcover. Reading copy. SOCIOLOGY. Follows the growth and decay of the American aristocracy from its origin in the American Civil War to its disintegration with the rising immigration in the twentieth century. David Cannadine’s The Decline and Fall of the British Aristocracy is a great book, but rather heavy going in a scholarly way and not for the fainthearted. It really gets into the nitty gritty of what was going on politically, socially and economically, down to the detail of specific tax rates for specific people in specific counties.
