Summary
"In this brilliantly argued book, the authors explore the reasons behind the higher rate for homicides among whites in the southern United States. They discover that it isn't socioeconomic class, population density, the legacy of slavery, or the heat of the South; it is the traditional "culture of honor"--In which a man's reputation is seen as central to his economic survival - that makes the difference."--Jacket
