"A philosopher offers an impassioned... defense of honor cultures."--Kirkus Reviews
"A funny, smart, provocative book in defense of honor--without which, says Tamler Sommers, liberal democracies become craven and selfish. A timely book for liberals and conservatives alike."--Anne Applebaum, Pulitzer-Prize winning historian, and Professor of Practice, Institute of Global Affairs, London School of Economics
"Beautifully written, fiercely argued, and very timely, Why Honor Matters is really going to shake things up."--Paul Bloom, author of Against Empathy
"Any defense of honor must explain what it is, acknowledging its dangers while suggesting how to mitigate them and showing the good that it can do. Tamler Sommers accomplishes all three tasks splendidly; in sparkling prose, sprinkled with everyday examples, he shows why now, as always, honor matters."--Kwame Anthony Appiah, professor of philosophy and law at NYU and author of The Honor Code
"Sommers's vivid style and engaging anecdotes will appeal to general readers as well as to those interested in moral and political philosophy. It draws comparison to William Ian Miller's Eye for an Eye."--Library Journal
"Sommers's arguments for honor make it sound like an attractive and necessary virtue." --The Atlantic
"Why Honor Matters positions a culture centered in honor against one that its author calls a dignity culture."--Wall Street Journal
"This is a top-notch study and a priority resource for those interested in ethics and philosophy."--CHOICE
