Edited by David Gilmore, Honor and Shame and the Unity of the Mediterranean is available at the AAA online store at a discounted member rate.
Gilmore provides new, comparable data on Peristiany’s paradigm, “honor and shame.” He reexamines fundamental assumptions about Mediterranean unity made on the basis of the original honor/shame model.
This volume is thus especially significant and timely, and should be recognized as generally important for anthropologists, regardless of their particular ethnographic concerns. Saunders~Anthropological Quarterly 1988.
SUPPORTS: European history and area studies, coursework in religion, anthropology of gender and social control.
