The Amy Vanderbilt Complete Book of Etiquette, which was first published in 1952 and last revised in 1978, is as much a guide to contemporary living as it is an etiquette book. In earlier times, an etiquette book could easily distinguish between "proper" and "improper" behavior. The task is no longer so simple, given the wide diversity of cultures in contemporary America. Today more than ever, in our rapidly changing world, it is important to know how to conduct oneself with confidence and grace. Time-honored traditions - christenings, weddings, and bar mitzvahs - still play important parts in our lives. Authors Tuckerman and Dunnan provide steady guidance on these and other social matters, advising readers where old expectations still apply and where customs have changed.
