Find all the books, read about the author, and more. Auchincloss was himself a corporate attorney (he never really quit his day job) and his delineations of these cynical, self-satisfied mandarins are razor-like. The Matrons" is a set of four portraits of four of the rules of Old New York society. Most of them are old themselves, naturally, because it takes a lifetime to become so entrenched in power through the judicious application of wealth and family connections. Theirs is a very small world and they control all the highways through it, even if that tight grip leads to self-destruction.

Gathers selections from the diaries of two prominent nineteenth century citizens of New York City in which they discuss the social, political, and economic aspects of city life

A lot of book! A really rich chunk of NY history from many perspectives - some more interesting than others but all of it well researched with lots of photos and illustrations.

These diaries give the reader a taste of how two of New York's leading citizens see their social, political, and personal worlds. There is a strong flavor of the times in their unvarnished language. This book whetted my desire for a more complete text of Strong's diaries because they cover the Civil War in Manhattan, a particular interest of mine. The illustrations from Currier and Ives, Harper's, etc., work nicely with the text.

Louis Auchincloss presents two diaries which help the reader better appreciate the growth of Manhattan during the nascent years of this country.
Both the diarists chronicle the great and the mundane events which guided this nation through the assimilation of new citizens, the growth of a two-party system and the development of a war between the industrial states and the agricultural states.
Hone is expecially descriptive of the social dynamics which followed the overthrow of aristocracy and the rise of a political party whose leaders succeeded by manipulating large numbers of newly immigrated citizens.
This book is especially valuable for those of us who have trouble visualising Manhattan as a town modest by today's standards. To paraphrase Mr. Auchincloss' notes, it is for people who don't remember when The Battery was uptown.
