About The Book
In 1936, Henry ‘Chips’ Channon gave a lavish dinner for King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson at his house in Belgrave Square. Feasting on blinis, caviare, sole and beef, served by the ruthlessly-drilled precision of Chips’ staff, it was a vivid demonstration of just how far the Americans had percolated high society. The British aristocracy, impoverished by death duties, agricultural collapse and higher taxation, as well as morally shattered by the First World War, could only look on. It was as if the world had been turned upside down. As Lady Londonderry observed, it seemed as if London was ‘being run by an American syndicate’. What had happened to bring about this change? How had the Americans become so powerful, so rich, so over here? Them and Us is a story of social upheaval, of the transformation which took place when British high society — that bastion against the forces of the New — gave in to America.
