This study considers how the English landed gentry secured their
position of enduring wealth and power. Over the century between
1650 and 1750, they were transformed from a provincial social order
to a national ruling elite. The author addresses the shaping of the
cultural identity of the landed classes: their increasingly
cosmopolitan outlook, their role in the new world party in the late
Hanoverian eras and their influence on the supposed political
stability of the mid-18th century.
