Snobbery The American Version
Snobbery in America after the "fall of the prominence of the old wasp culture of prep schools, Ivy League colleges, cotillions, debutante balls the Social Register, and the rest of it": " Life over the past fifty years cannot have been easy for the snob. His social radar would have been almost constantly atwitter as one hierarchy after another in American life has broken down and been replaced by new ones, ever more blurry and more ephemeral."
