Elaborating on issues that he feels his 1996 novel Circle raised without completely resolving, Davetian (sociology and anthropology, U. of Prince Edward Island, Canada) investigates whether a rigorous understanding of the anatomy of civility and incivility help prevent social cruelty, and what roles pride and shame play in social organization and in minor and major conflicts. He begins by tracing the genealogy of Western courtesy and civility, from barbarism molting into courtly manners through secular civility in the Renaissance, identity and awareness shifts in Protestantism and the Enlightenment, French court society and revolution, and the English Victorian ethic to American democracy and informal civility. Then he discusses the rise of the late-modern American self; the multi-faceted anatomy of civility; and contemporary French, American, and English civility and interaction.
