Overview

George Washington’s Rules Defined
While our civilization continues to advance, our capacity to live civilly—to appreciate our common humanity with empathy and humility—ironically dwindles daily. Even as we become more technologically connected, many of us feel increasingly disconnected and disengaged from each other.
Civility Rules! offers an opportunity to learn about the history, substance, and significance of civility through the lens of George Washington’s “Rules of Civility.”
Drawing on personal experience, real-life examples, and a foundational belief that civility is integral to a democratic society, author Shelby Scarbrough shares how we might work toward a more perfect union by building a personal practice of civility.
Civility is not an archaic concept of manners and politeness but rather a crucial component of a functioning democracy. Shelby shows us how—with conscientious practice and patience—we can each contribute to the preservation of our democracy, one interaction at a time.
