KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the story of the code of killing, which reached its height in mid 19th century America. Formalities and curiosities of the code, with regional variations; famous duels; the cult of murder, based on bravado, fashion and public opinion. For those interested -- here it is. But I should think it would be very limited.
