Publisher Comments:

In cities from Boston to Charleston, elite men and women of eighteenth-century British America came together in private venues to script a polite culture. By examining their various 'texts'—conversations, letters, newspapers, and privately circulated manuscripts—David Shields reconstructs the discourse of civility that flourished in and further shaped elite society in British America.
