Bowing to Necessities by C.Dallett Hemphill
Book DescriptionHow men and women interact, the respect young show old and old show young, and who doffs their hat to whom provides a telling window on American cultural history. Bowing To Necessities is the chronologically most wide-ranging study, covering the long period of 1620 to 1860, of its kind. Working through two centuries of conduct literature, Professor Hemphill provides a wonderful retelling of American history to the Civil War, illuminating crucial connections between evolving class, gender, and age relations along the way.

Anglo-Americans wrestled with cultural contradictions as they shifted from the patriarchal society of the 17th-century to the class democracy of the mid-19th century. This title argues that manners provided ritual solutions to these problems just as these power relations underwent challenges.
