Overview

This fully revised second edition shows how, in the past, when blood revenge took place, the perpetrators were proud of the fact as it enhanced their honor, however, now admittance of guilt is much more proscribed, and the authorities, unable to penetrate the strict secrecy codes of Arab society, have to adopt new strategies to prevent disputes getting out of hand. This work investigates this issue, which has tremendous implications for law and order in Israeli society, and also takes account of the political upheavals since 1987 and provides substantial new ethnographic material.
