Description


Jones describes the Germanic code of honor and chronologically traces the gradual development of honor in the West. Subjects included in the work are shame culture, guilt culture, the courtly romances, honor dramas, woman's honor, the ridicule of false honor, Southern honor, military and national honor, the field of honor, deviant honor codes, and honor today. The author explores the Christian code of honor, then he examines the theories of the Greeks and Romans. The honor code of the age of chivalry is juxtaposed to the Christian stoic values of the period.
