Miss Manners rescues civilization : from sexual harassment, frivolous lawsuits, dissing, and other lapses in civility by Judith Martin( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the entire nation screaming for a return to civility, Miss Manners, the highest authority, takes matters into her own properly gloved hands and puts etiquette where it belongs - on the public agenda. Miss Manners Rescues Civilization is a wise, witty and startling examination of how the breakdown of etiquette is contributing to the disintegration of our society." "Even the government finds itself battered by our national epidemic of rudeness, yet the very politicians who cry loudest for civility fail to understand the roots of the problem. Using a combination of essays and answers to her Gentle Readers' questions, Miss Manners examines society's ever-rising level of irritation, from the classroom to the caucus room. She shows the crucial role of etiquette in such contemporary issues as political correctness, multiculturalism, sexual harassment, educational failure and freedom of speech." "Miss Manners leads the charge toward a livable future rather than a return to the etiquette of past eras. But calling for civility without etiquette is like asking for morality without law, she says. Idealists who mistakenly reject etiquette as snobbish, repressive and dishonest fail to understand that manners form the philosophical basis for civilized life. As society's common language of behavior, manners have always functioned as the modest partner of morality to protect the dignity of everyone, especially society's less powerful members."--Jacket

Miss Manners' basic training : the right thing to say by Judith Martin( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the myriad rudeness that today passes for consolation, congratulation, and other forms of verbal communication, Miss Manners provides politely pointed comebacks as well as the gracious and proper thing to say in any situation. Miss Manners hereby declares that "You look terrific-did you have a facelift?" is not an acceptable compliment. For this and the other myriad rudeness that nowadays pass for consolation, congratulation and other forms of verbal communication, Miss Manners provides politely pointed comebacks, as well as the gracious and proper thing to say in any situation. Miss Manners feels compelled to do so because saying the wrong thing-whether in the name of originality, self-expression, honesty or instant empathy-has become all too common: To a bereaved person: "You must realize it's all for the best." To a newly engaged person: "Are you sure you know what you're doing?" To a pregnant woman: "You can still do something about it, you know." The Right Thing to Say is a refresher course in etiquette as a second language, filled with the practical advice and sly humor that make Miss Manners such "good wicked fun, and helpful too" (Cosmopolitan). Including useful phrases for dealing with life's special occasions and mishaps, The Right Thing to Say explores the subtleties of saying "no," conducting a conversation without causing offense and the art of the apology when you do anyway
