Civility

(1998)
Manners , Morals, and the Eitquette of Democracy
A non fiction book by

 
 
In this followup to Integrity, Yale law professor Stephen Carter continues to meditate upon the 'prepolitical' qualities on which a healthy society is based.Why do people show poorer manners today than in previous ages? How did we come to confuse rudeness with self-expression and acting on our 'rights' ? Carter looks at these and other important questions with a combination of his personal experiences and an extremely long shelf of reading material, all the while maintaining an informal writing style that continually - but politely - engages the reader, inviting him or her to think about these issues along with Carter.There are important messages here about generosity and trust, about respecting diversity and dissent, and about resolving conflict through dialogue rather than mandate. Stephen Carter would never be so uncivil as to demand your attention, but Civility most definitely compels.
