Summary
<DIV><DIV><P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">Early modern Spain has long been viewed as having a culture obsessed with honor, where a man resorted to violence when his or his wife8217;s honor was threatened, especially through sexual disgrace. This book8212;the first to closely examine honor and interpersonal violence in the era8212;overturns this idea, arguing that the way Spanish men and women actually behaved was very different from the behavior depicted in dueling manuals, law books, and 8220;honor plays8221; of the period. <P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">€ <P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">Drawing on criminal and other records to assess the character of violence among non-elite Spaniards, historian Scott K. Taylor finds that appealing to honor was a rhetorical strategy, and that insults, gestures, and violence were all part of a varied repertoire that allowed both men and women to decide how to dispute issues of truth and reputation. </DIV></DIV>
