dc.description.abstractWhy etiquette? Most books of this sort feel the need to justify their existence. Often they get stuck one step earlier: What is etiquette? Is it simply courtesy, or a behavioural code used for separating people into classes? Von Adlerstein’s solution is as elegant as any. She speaks of the ‘therapeutic power of courtesy’ — a nice catch-phrase, and one that might give an unfashionable concept some currency in this Californian age. Etiquette, she suggests, is a ‘behavioural “language” endorsed by the herd and understood by everyone’.en
