Since the publication of Wyatt-Brown's book, it is interesting to trace the emergence of a fairly sophisticated and wide-ranging body of literature dealing with "honor" (and 'shame' for that matter) from psychological, moral, and philosophical perspectives (e.g., Alexander Welsh's 2008 volume, What Is Honor? A Question of Moral Imperatives), the latest of which I hope to read shortly is Kwame Anthony Appiah's The Honor Code: How Moral Revolutions Happen (Norton, 2010). Faculty Lounge readers would probably also be interested in Nate Oman's paper, "The Honor of Private Law," available at SSRN: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1792467

I knew him somewhat socially--we belonged tp the same club in Baltimore. He was a fine person as well as an outstanding historian, His father-in-law, William Marbury, was one of the outstanding legal figures in the country in the middle third of the last century
