Reviews

"[Thomas] traces the history of civility back to antiquity but argues that this "social glue" binding our culturally divided society together has never been more important or so subject to debate. . . . [A] fascinating study."-- "Wall Street Journal"
"In examining both the narrow meanings of "manners" and "civility" and their wider ones, the author seeks to capture what the English considered "distinctive and superior" about them themselves and their culture."-- "The New Criterion"
"A thought-provoking study from a prominent, early modern historian. . . . Recommended."-- "Choice"
