Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rishel’s study is thought provoking, well researched, and well written. . . . Likely to become a classic in the study of American class and social mobility."
--American Historical Review



"Rishel’s book is an excellent, highly readable contribution to the literature on Pittsburgh and on the question of elites and social mobility."
--Journal of American History


"Traces the evolution of twenty of Pittsburgh’s earliest families into an ‘identifiable and homogeneous upper class.’ Such a study adds to our understanding of the persistence of regional elites of the late revolutionary period through the nineteenth century. . . . Rishel has written a laudably readable book using quantitative analysis and, more importantly, has given us a very interesting look at the elite of a non-seaboard city."
--Journal of the Early Republic
