Entitled: A Critical History of the British Aristocracy

by Chris Bryant - £10.99  Transworld Publishers Ltd (Black Swan) (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781784160661 | ISBN 10: 1784160660

Exploring the extraordinary social and political dominance enjoyed by the British aristocracy over the centuries, Entitled seeks to explain how a tiny number of noble families rose to such a position in the first place. It reveals the often nefarious means they have employed to maintain their wealth, power and prestige and examines the greed, ambition, jealousy and rivalry which drove aristocratic families to guard their interests with such determination.
 
In telling their history, Entitled introduces a cast of extraordinary characters: fierce warriors, rakish dandies, political dilettantes, charming eccentrics, arrogant snobs and criminals who quite literally got away with murder.
