in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Estudio sobre el desarrollo y modificación de las nociones de las élites mexicanas acerca del crimen y la conducta criminal durante el siglo XIX e inicios del XX, años fundamentales para la formación del Estado moderno en el país.

El autor sostiene que las retóricas del liberalismo, el positivismo y la Revolución se propusieron ocultar esas exclusiones bajo el manto de la criminalidad, para proscribir como delictivas actividades vinculadas con grupos sociales marginados
