Radical Justice

Luis Martín-Cabrera

Spain and the Southern Cone beyond Market and State

255 pages
ISBN 1611483567

Radical Justice investigates the convoluted relationship between memory and justice as it is portrayed in political documentaries and detective fiction from Spain and the Southern Cone. It argues that the possibility of achieving justice in these regions lies beyond market and state and is yet to come. Rather than focusing on "high literature," Radical Justice uses popular culture as a site from which to question both the inability of the state and the transnational market to come to terms with the dictatorial past and to deliver justice. This book will interest a wide range of scholars, from national literature and film specialists of Argentina, Chile, and Spain to philosophers and students of ethics, human rights, and questions of justice.
