Now hes back with further explorations into the complexities of human relationships, this time examining whats really going on when we assign credit or cast blame.Everybody does it, but few understand the hidden motivations behind it. With his customary wit and dazzling insight, Tilly takes a lively and thought-provoking look at the ways people fault and applaud each other and themselves. The stories he gathers in Credit and Blame range from the everyday to the altogether unexpected, from the revealingly personal to the insightfully humorous--whether its the gushing acceptance speech of an Academy Award winner or testimony before a congressional panel, accusations hurled in a lovers quarrel or those traded by nations in a post-9/11 crisis, or a job promotion or the Nobel Prize.

Drawing examples from literature, history, pop culture, and much more, Tilly argues that people seek not only understanding through credit and blame, but also justice. The punishment must fit the crime, accomplishments should be rewarded, and the guilty parties must always get their just deserts.Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, Credit and Blame is a book that revolutionizes our understanding of the compliments we pay and the accusations we make.
