This article describes the interactions of honor, shame & suicide in Greece. 197 cases reported by a credible journal from 1960-1963 are analyzed for sex/age differences, rural-urban differences, occupational differences, & real/alleged differences. Results indicate that there is some redefinition of honor/dishonor taking place at this time, however honor & its facilitation of suicide are still apparent. (35 refs) (SC)
