Sorry! The English and Their Manners.
A thorough history of how our current manners developed, how they change over time, and why they matter so much. What does it mean to be English anyway? Amusing, illuminating, inventive. From chivalry to hospitality, with sources as varied as Austen and Pepys, Hitchings has created a fun blend of history, anthropology, and a personal journey of exploration.
