Noblesse Oblige

Author(s): Osbert Lancaster


Nancy Mitford's article, "The English Aristocracy", sparked off a public debate in an England, which, until its publication in 1955, had been blissfully unconscious of the phenomenon of "Upper-Class English Usage" and its implications. This volume records the ensuing discussions.
