Product description

From the blurb;

"In this book the record the Spanish Judiciary is examined through the prism of a series of representative cases since the transition to democracy. Key is the way the judiciary has dealt with those who have investigated cases of people murdered by the military rebels from July 1936 onwards. Shoot the Messenger? relates thirteen judicial cases that place between 1981 and 2012. They range from the banning of the documentary film Rocio by Fernando Ruiz Vergara, because it named the person for one of the massacres in southwest Spain, to the trial of Judge Garzon. The judicial outcome in each case reflected the prejudices and ideology of the judge charge.

The Francoist repression still constitutes a dead weight in Spanish politics as heavy as the gravestone that covers the remains of the dictator in the Valle de los Caidos. The nature of the transition from autocracy to democracy has made it difficult to overcome a black past that not even the post-Franco democratic govenments - Rodriguez Zapatero`s "memory" policy included - have dared confront. The potential defrocking of Judge Garzon puts the Spanish polity/judiciary back in the realm of Franco`s end-of-year message on December 30, 1969, with what became the nautical catch-phrase of his twilight years, "all is lashed down and well lashed down" (todo ha quedado atado, y bien atado)."

Excellent pages with slight edge-wear.
