Blood and Violence in Early Modern France
The rise of civilized conduct and behaviour has long been seen as one of the major factors in the transformation from medieval to modern society. Thinkers and historians alike argue that violence progressively declined as men learned to control their emotions. The feud is a phenomenon associated with backward societies, and in the West duelling codified behaviour and channelled aggression into ritualised combats that satisfied honour without the shedding of blood. French manners and codes of civility laid the foundations of civilized Western values. But as this original work of archival research shows we continue to romanticize violence in the era of the swashbuckling swordsman. In France, thousands of men died in duels in which the rules of the game were regularly flouted. Many duels were in fact mini-battles and must be seen not as a replacement of the blood feud, but as a continuation of vengeance-taking in a much bloodier form. This book outlines the nature of feuding in France and its intensification in the wake of the Protestant Reformation, civil war and dynastic weakness, and considers the solutions proposed by thinkers from Montaigne to Hobbes. The creation of the largest standing army in Europe since the Romans was one such solution, but the militarization of society, a model adopted throughout Europe, reveals the darker side of the civilizing process.

Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck

Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck By Amy Alkon
2014 | 256 Pages | ISBN: 1250030714 | EPUB + MOBI | 3 MB

Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck
We live in a world that's very different from the one in which Emily Post came of age. Many of us who are nice (but, who also sometimes say f*ck) are frequently at a loss for guidelines about how to be a good person who deals effectively with the onslaught of rudeness we all encounter. To lead us through this miasma of modern manners, syndicated columnist Amy Alkon – The Advice Goddess – gives us a new set of manners for our 21st century lives. In chapters titled The Telephone, The Internet, The Apology and Communicating, among others, Alkon maps out new rules that go beyond what fork to use to answer real questions we all have: When is it okay to phone somebody instead of emailing or texting? When is it rude? Why shouldn't you tweet about a guest at a private dinner party? Everybody knows privacy is dead, right? How do you shut the guy up in the pharmacy line with his cell phone on speaker? When is it right to approach somebody who's crying in public and when is it right to leave him alone? When should you un-friend somebody on Facebook and what do you say when she calls you on it? If you have an STD, when do you tell people, what do you say and do you have to contact everyone you've ever had sex with? Real advice for today with more than a touch of humour, is destined to give good old Emily a shove off the etiquette shelf (if that's not too rude to say).

Publisher: C U P 1999 | 284 Pages | ISBN: 0521646898 , 0521640717 | PDF | 17 MB

Governing Morals: A Social History of Moral Regulation
This broad-ranging history of moral regulation in Britain and the United States from the late seventeenth century onward, covers specific movements such as the Society for the Reformation of Manners, the Vice Society, sexual abuse and anti-pornography movements, and self-help movements. Hunt argues that the main impetus for moral regulations often stems from the middle classes, rather than those with institutional power, but most significantly they provide classic instances of the intimate link between the "governance of others" and the "governance of the self."
