The Spectator and Men of Property: Social Affairs Unit book is the cover story in this week's Spectator

Posted by Michael Mosbacher

The Social Affairs Unit's new book Men of Property: The Very Wealthy in Britain since the Industrial Revolution by William D. Rubinstein is the subject of the cover story in this week's Spectator (15th July 2006): The ascent of the rich - Allister Heath unveils exclusive statistics that show the wealthy have never been wealthier.

The first edition of Men of Property came out in 1981 and is widely credited with shaping the so-called "Gentlemanly capitalism" school of economic history. The Social Affairs Unit is now publishing a fully revised and updated edition, which brings the story up-to-date and shows that today is the era of Britain's great fortunes.
