“SORRY! THE ENGLISH AND THEIR MANNERS” presents an amusing, illustrating and quirky audit of English manners and investigates the ties between them and the notions of Englishness. From basic table manners to appropriate sexual conduct, via hospitality, chivalry, faux pas and online etiquette, Henry Hitchings, the author of this book published by John Murray in 2013, traces the history of English customs and courtesies. This blend of history, anthropology and personal journey helps understand the bizarre and contested cultural baggage of the English. A good introduction to intercultural studies.
