Growth Series

A trilogy that traces the growth of the United States through the declining fortunes of three generations of the aristocratic Amberson family in a fictional Mid-Western town, between the end of the Civil War and the early part of the 20th century. The decline of the Ambersons is contrasted with the rising fortunes of industrial tycoons and other new money families, which did not derive power from family names but by "doing things". As one Amberson dynasty member says "don't you think being things is 'rahthuh bettuh' than doing things?"
