In any society, a foreigner learning the language must also learn what passes for good manners. The same is true for the historian trying to understand the social rules of a period and why these change. This book explores the nature and development of early modern conceptions of good manners, and examines some of the particular forms of everyday behaviour which these conceptions implied. 'Courtesy' and 'Civility' were among the values central to Tudor and Stuart assumptions and fears about the social and political order.

Review:

never fails to offer illuminating insights which point the reader in fruitful directions while stimulating further thought. This is an important study that deserves not only wide readership but active engagement from other historians interested in elite culture. (Continuity and Change, 16)

stimulating (Continuity and Change, 16)

gracefully written (Continuity and Change, 16)

This is a sophisticated and illuminating study of early modern England that should appeal to the full range of intellectual, cultural, social, and political historians of the period. (Karen Halttunen, William and Mary Quarterly, April 2001)

This stimulating volume in the prestigious series, Oxford Studies in Social History deals with ... notions of civility and courtesy reflected in bodily demeanour and interaction, in table manners, conversation, and modes of greeting. (Barry Reay, Social History Bulletin, Vol.25, No.1., Summer 2000.)

it is an impressive book. (Barry Reay, Social History Bulletin, Vol.25, No.1., Summer 2000.)

It is ... gratifying to see an early modern historian traversing the borders between social and intellectual history with such confidence. (Barry Reay, Social History Bulletin, Vol.25, No.1., Summer 2000.)

It should be in the libraries of not just every early modern historian and political scientist but on the desk of every modern sociologist. (Barry Reay, Social History Bulletin, Vol.25, No.1., Summer 2000.)

It should be in the libraries of not just every early modern historian and political scientist but on the desk of every modern sociologist. (Barry Reay, Social History Bulletin, Vol.25, No.1, Furness College.)
