This work traces the emergence of the jury in 19th-century Spain and its establishment and disappearances throughout 190 years of Spanish history.

The text is interdisciplinary, placing the successive Spanish jury laws within a general political and social context. It includes material on the origins of the echevinat and addresses issues not confronted by Spanish or other jurists, and it questions received wisdom.
