Literary Giants: Snobbery

This readable but serious work examines the nature and place of snobbery and its various manifestations in America. Epstein defines snobbery as the practice of making oneself feel superior at the expense of others. He writes of snobbery in the workplace, and of its presence in evaluating education, taste, dress, wealth, and race as factors in determining "class" inclusion. He compares his own snobberies with those he discerns in others, and overviews Americans' interactions with the cultures of England and the European continent.
