The Rituals of Dinner: The Origins, Evolution, Eccentricities and Meaning of Table Manners

by Margaret Visser

Penguin Books, 1991

The title pretty much says it all.  However, Visser does address such questions as the origin of the pot luck dinner, children’s behavior at the table, and proper conversation in Europe with some references to Asian customs.
