Index
Crime at El Escorial presents a comparative social and judicial analysis of an 1892 child murder, drawing from newspaper archives among other historical documents. D.J. Walker discusses the role of Spain's intellectual elite in crystallizing dissatisfaction with the popular jury through its criticism of the "masses" and the impact of journalists' fictionalized representations of the murder on public opinion.
