A Short History Of Rudeness
Manners, Morals, And Misbehavior In Modern AmericaBook - 1999
"In his thought-provoking new book, literary/social critic Mark Caldwell gives us a history of the demise of manners and charts the triumphant progress of rudeness in America. Touching on aspects of both our public and private lives, including work, family, and sex, he examines how the rules of behavior inevitably change and explains why, no matter how hard we try, we can never return to a golden era of civilized manners and mores."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
