Book Presentation: A History of Infamy: Crime, Truth and Justice in Mexico

Pablo Piccato presents his new book, A History of Infamy, which explores the broken nexus between crime, justice, and truth in mid-20th century Mexico. Faced with the violence and impunity that defined politics, policing, and the judicial system in post-revolutionary times, Mexicans sought truth and justice outside state institutions. During this period, criminal news and crime fiction flourished. As Piccato demonstrates, ordinary people in Mexico have made crime and punishment central concerns of the public sphere during the last century, and in doing so have shaped crime and violence in our times.

Speaker: Pablo Piccato, Columbia University
