Review

"Focusing on Carolina planter families like the Izards and Manigaults and their relations with upper-crust Philadelphians, Daniel Kilbride shows how conservative women and men bridged sectional lines, using reactionary politics, exclusive education, and polite social rituals to construct a distinct aristocratic identity." - Cynthia A. Kierner, author of Scandal at Bizarre" --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

From the Inside Flap

"Focusing on Carolina planter families like the Izards and Manigaults and their relations with upper-crust Philadelphians, Daniel Kilbride shows how conservative women and men bridged sectional lines, using reactionary politics, exclusive education, and polite social rituals to forge a distinct aristocratic identity."--Cynthia A. Kierner, author of Scandal at Bizarre: Rumor and Reputation in Jefferson's America

An American Aristocracy traces the ties of class, kinship, and culture which bound together groups of southern planters and Philadelphia elites in the antebellum years. Although we've known of these links, no one before Kilbride has so carefully and thoughtfully explored their meaning--especially in the light of regional identity and growing sectional tensions. This is a well-conceived, well-researched, and sharply written study which will add new layers to our understanding of the role of class and place in this era."--Steven M. Stowe, author of Intimacy and Power in the Old South: Ritual in the Lives of the Planters

"An American Aristocracy is a significant contribution to urban history and regional history. In his meticulous, thoughtful study, Daniel Kilbride demonstrates that many factors combined to form cultural identity in antebellum America. Historians of the North and the South will benefit equally from this important book."--Joan Cashin, author of A Family Venture: Men and Women on the Southern Frontier
