Free sample

The 2010 Spanish-language analysis of institutions of law, politics, and reform in Venezuela 1780-2000, from the nation’s leading voice. Even though seeking justice is an undoubted good, the history of that effort has sometimes resulted in the creation of machinery and policies that have perversely resulted in massive injustices. This book is the culmination of years of intensive research, in records and interviews by Rogelio Pérez Perdomo, renowned law professor at Unimet in Caracas and frequent writer (in Spanish and English) on law and society in South America; the work frames in a new way the search for democracy and equality in Venezuelan society and even its recent history and legal reforms. The analysis applies to Latin American democracy as well. 

El tema principal es la relación entre la justicia y la política. No está explorada usando una hipótesis sencilla, e.g. que la justicia ha estado siempre al servicio de la política. Tal tipo de hipótesis empobrecería el análisis…. El aparato de justicia es necessario pero a la vez es peligroso.
