About the Book Etiquette is the code of behavior that defines expectations for social behavior according to accepted norms within a society, social class, or grouping. The French word étiquette, meaning tag or label, has been used for this purpose since 1750. During the Enlightenment era, the self-conscious process of adopting polite norms and behaviours became the indicator of a genteel member of the upper class. Hence, the aspiring middle class bourgeoisie tried to identify with the elite by adopted their artistic preferences and standards of behavior. This resulted in a preoccupation with precise rules of etiquette: when and how to show emotion; elegant dress; graceful conversation; and how to behave with charm and courtesy, especially towards women. Books on etiquette instruct in these norms of behavior.About usTrieste Publishing’s aim is to provide readers with the highest quality reproductions of fiction and non-fiction literature that has stood the test of time.
