Rudeness and Civility: Manners in Nineteenth-Century Urban America - Kasson, John F

Kasson writes of the deep tensions created by the demands of democracy, the pressures of an expanding market economy, and the desire for social distinction. Vividly and with humor, he re-creates the deferential and often coarse society of the colonial years. Illustrated.
