KIRKUS REVIEW

A brief biography of behaviour, which analyses from old annals the evolution of department from revolutionary times to the present. The change in canons of breeding which patterned the change in class relations, through the era of republicanism, the of the high '90's, the Dorothy Dix, Beatrice Fairfax, Emily Post anomalies, as they set standards for their sex through the era of the new freedom... A documentary which is rather limited in subject and interest, a book for reference on manners of the times, rather than an etiquette book per se.
