Summary
Edith Wharton feared that the 'ill-bred', foreign and poor would overwhelm an American elite. Drawing on a range of turn-of-the-century social documents, unpublished archival material and Wharton's major novels, Kassanoff argues that a fuller appreciation of American culture and democracy becomes available through an engagement with these controversial views
