Popular Injustice focuses on the spread of highly punitive forms of social control (known locally as mano dura) in contemporary Latin America. Many people have not only called for harsher punishments, such as longer prison sentences and the reintroduction of capital punishment, but also support vigilante practices like lynchings. In Guatemala, hundreds of these mob killings have occurred since the end of the country's armed conflict in 1996. Drawing on dozens of interviews with residents of lynching communities, Godoy argues that while these acts of violence do reveal widespread frustration with the criminal justice system, they are more than simply knee-jerk responses to crime. They demonstrate how community ties have been reshaped by decades of state violence and by the social and economic changes associated with globalization.

From the Back Cover:

“This book is a breakthrough that builds on the growing body of literature about crime and governance. Godoy offers rich narrative evidence and often stunning insights about globalization, democratization, the rule of law, transitional justice, and the war on terror.”—Jonathan Simon, Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California, Berkeley
“This is a truly original, sophisticated, and nuanced interpretation of lynchings as a form of popular injustice. I know of no other work that addresses such a poignant issue. Godoy examines this difficult topic with audacity and sensibility, but also with due attention to the multiple layers of meaning and causality behind such a complex phenomenon.”—Carlos Aguirre, University of Oregon

About the Author:
