9780807846568: Civil Tongues and Polite Letters in British America (Published by the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture and the University of North Carolina Press)

In cities from Boston to Charleston, elite men and women of eighteenth-century British America came together in private venues to script a polite culture.

Book Description:

"Examines the complexities of private society with detailed, lively accounts of the coffeehouses, clubs, salons, balls, and tea times of eighteenth-century America. Shields recreates an exuberant social exchange that provides a significant contribution for scholars, students, and general readers of British-American history and culture. . . . An invaluable source of archival writings, poetry, letters, gazettes, all meticulously gathered for this collection. . . . Not only testifies to women's influence on public discourse but also suggests exciting directions for future scholarship in what is certainly a landmark study."-- Women's Studies
