Grand Fortunes: Dynasties and Forms of Wealth in France
Michel Pincon, Monique Pincon-Charlot, Andrea Lyn SecaraISBN: 0964607352;
Going back for generations, the fortunes of great families consist of far more than money-they are also symbols of culture and social interaction. They are at the heart of dense family and extra-family networks, of international coalitions and divisions. The authors elucidate the machinery of accumulation and the paradoxically quasi-collective nature of private fortunes.
