Traces the emergence of the jury in 19th century Spain and its establishment and disappearances throughout 190 years of Spanish history. The work is inter-disciplinary, placing the successive Spanish jury laws within a general political and social context. It includes previously-unexplored material on the origins of the échevinat; it addresses issues not confronted by Spanish or other jurists, and it questions received wisdom.
