Summary note:
"The primary purpose of the book is to document extensively instances of inappropriate and offensive behavior throughout different periods in American history and to show how Americans chose to condemn these behaviors. The book reveals how many of the customs that Americans in different periods in history felt were not acceptable--and shows how much of these views have changed over time. It is in these changes and in seeing how American society has evolved that the greatest amount of real learning will emerge in the book"-- Provided by publisher.
