This is an English translation by John W. Van Cleve. Baron Adolph Franz Ludwig von Knigge was born in 1752 in Bredenbeck, a small town in the Electorate of Hanover, a small state within the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. ...Adolph Knigge has long been familiar to German-speaking Europe primarily as the author of a deportment and etiquette guide whose impact there was significant. Otherwise, his activity as sole or contributing author extended to over twenty additional book titles, most of which offered readers a view of the world that was deeply influenced by Enlightenment thinking and liberal politics. -John W. Van Cleve ("Translator's Preface")
