Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home (frequently referenced as Etiquette) is a book authored by Emily Post in 1922.[1][2] The book covers manners and other social rules, and has been updated frequently to reflect social changes, such as diversity, redefinitions of family, and mobile technology.[3] The 19th edition of Etiquette (2017), is authored by Post's descendants Lizzie Post and Daniel Post Senning.[4]

Legacy[edit]

  • The sociologist Erving Goffman drew for his studies of ritual in everyday life on what he called Post as "a good source of half-analysed material...in the ritual idiom of a hypothetical class".[5]
  • Joan Didion commended Emily Post for the practical wisdom of her chapter on Funerals (Ch XXIV), especially in relation to the physiology of grief and distress.[6]
