Two of Robert Ruark's books, The Honey Badger, and Something of Value, proved their entertainment value, but what of the content of the writings? The Honey Badger was written of the United States and revealed certain patterns of behavior in a sophisticated society of the Eastern United States. Something of Value was written of East Africa and revealed something of Kenya society. Did these books reveal any basic behavior patterns which are similar or could be useful to leaders who are trying to effect social change?
