The Saga of American Society

A Record of Social Aspiration, 1607–1937, by Dixon Wecter.

Dixon Vecter's work on the history and culture of America covering 1607-1937 takes a deep and focused look at adaptation of culture, manners, and social behavior of the developing nation of the United States. This is a very interesting dive into history and paints some very distinct perspectives through the expectations of social graces, which were often heavily practiced and published throughout history, and how they played out in the psychology of Americans. It's interesting to see the development of culture and the things that come to be known as "proper" and "highfalutin" and high society and where those roots come from. Written by a historian, this book contains a lot of lineage and name dropping. The previous owner really enjoyed the sections on manners and women, which are good for a chuckle and worth looking into.

You don't get enough marketing email!

Seriously? But I don't want to send you junky emails to get you to buy more stuff. What I will do is tell you about times when there are many new additions to the store and perhaps include some witty banter and fun behind the scene stories. But I definitely won't do this often enough to be a bother and I just might include the occasional discount code. Are you crazy enough to sign up?
