A funny and provocative cultural history of class, manners, and the decline of civility In his smart and thought provoking new book, literary/social critic Mark Caldwell gives us a history of the demise of manners and charts the progress of an epidemic of rudeness in America. The breakdown of civility has in recent years become a national obsession, and our modern climate of boorishness has cultivated a host of etiquette watchdogs, like Miss Manners and Martha Stewart, with which we defend ourselves against an onslaught of nastiness. But Caldwell demonstrates that the foundations of etiquette actually began to corrode several centuries ago with the blurring of class lines. Touching on aspects of both our public and private lives, including work, family, and sex, A Short History of Rudeness examines how the rules of our behaviour have changed and explains why, no matter how hard we try, we can never return to a golden era of manners and mores.

Internationale Geschäftsabschlüsse drohen an kulturellen Differenzen zu scheitern - so propagiert es die interkulturelle Kommunikation. Ana-Lucia Baldauf entkräftet diese Befürchtung durch einen Vergleich von interkulturellen und nationalen Ratgebern in Deutschland und den USA. Sie zeigt: Die inzwischen internationalisierte Kultur der »Business People« nimmt wenig Rücksicht auf nationale Umgangsformen.

When discrimination is race-based, we call it racism; when it's gender based we call it sexism. This book introduces rank-based discrimination or 'rankism' a form of injustice that everyone knows, but no one sees. It explains our reluctance to confront rankism, shows where analyses based on identity fall short and, using dozens of examples, traces many forms of injustice and unfairness back to rankism.
