Regional Identity in the Four Colonies

  • Max Sugar
Part of the Path in Psychology book series (PATH)


Early in my general psychiatry residency, a patient justified her behavior by the following analogy: “When you’re raised in a town where everybody is a horse thief, you grow up thinking it’s okay to be one.” Later on, another patient explained a relative’s personality by saying that the person was from a certain town! Further, similar events aroused my curiosity about geographical variations in values and ethics.
