The book studies the challenges to hereditary elites in the 19th century and how effectively the German, English and Russian aristocracies responded to these challenges. It surveys the wealth, economic activities, manners and morals, everyday life, culture, values, occupations and political roles of aristocracy in Europe's three most powerful monarchies.
