Women of "class" refers to upper class women; it is only they who have it. They view themselves and their children as special and better than others. Great job of exploring the lives and problems of upper class women. I have to wonder what, if anything, has changed since then. I love books written by academics that are written in plain English. There are great tidbits about class scattered, or perhaps just tossed out, though out the book: like the fastest way to move up in class.

Upper-class landowners in Europe were often also members of the titled nobility, though not necessarily: the prevalence of titles of nobility varied widely from country to country  .

In a unique departure from the usual stereotypes, Susan Ostrander gained access to this elite community and interviewed the women in one U.S. region to study their roles, activities, and self-images. Among her conclusions, Ostrander shows that although these women are economically and socially powerful, they are for the most part, unliberated, being subservient to their husbands and to their duty to bear and raise children.

Comments to eBook Women of the Upper Class (Women In The Political Economy)
Magis
Extremely objective and insightful read. The framework provided in this book helped me understand class issues much more deeply. Written by a professor but is nevertheless an easy and enjoyable read. There are few well written books on this topic and this was the best I had encountered in a long time. Just wished there was an updated version as the studies referred to in this book are a bit dated.

Women of "class" refers to upper class women; it is only they who have it. They view themselves and their children as special and better than others. They are snobs and they know it. They don't want the masses to know it so they pacify them by their so called charity work. There charity work is done to raise money for museums, art institutes, hospitals, clinics, etc. They are careful not to perform any real social change, not wanting to "rock the boat" (Ostrander). They have a bit of unnecessary guilt because they're wealthy, but the shame serves no purpose, because there is no shame in being prosperous.

Ms. Ostrander showed supreme objectivity in her writing. The tone of her book is honest and a little sad. This is one of those rare books that is worth reading again and again.

Great job of exploring the lives and problems of upper class women. My only complaint is that the book should be updated (though it doesn't seem dated at all) because it has a copyright of 1984. I have to wonder what, if anything, has changed since then. I love books written by academics that are written in plain English.

There are great tidbits about class scattered, or perhaps just tossed out, though out the book: like the fastest way to move up in class. You'll have to read the book because I won't give it away.
