"The following pages attempt the study of a social and political development which seems, at first, alien to America, but which exercised an incalculable effect upon the rise of the United States. Virginia, more preeminently than her sister commonwealths, is the state of the family, the one American community in which an effort was made, and for a time succeeded, to create something resembling hereditary lines of nobles - in fact if not in name. The Lees are especially worthy of attention because, for two centuries, they stood well at the top of Virginia life, because they present a succession of engaging characters, and because they have exercised great influence on the American state. The last Lee who operated in the grand style - the military leader of the Confederacy." [Introduction, p.vii-viii] The definitive biography. 455 pages; genealogy chart. Faded spine. 1ST EDITION.
