Book Details


Situated in the figurational-process tradition of research associated with Norbert Elias, this dazzling book examines changes in American, Dutch, English and German manners, regarding the changing relationship between men and women. It examines the disappearance of rules for chaperonage and the rise of new codes for public transport, public dances, courting, dates and the work place. This is a major work of great accomplishment combining historical material with sociological, psychological and cultural analysis of a high order.
