Victor M. Uribe-Uran

Stanford University Press

Addresses historiographical and theoretical issues, discussing the literatures on domestic violence, crime, in particular homicide, and legal history. It proposes that this study bridges the worlds of social and legal history and contributes to historiographical debates concerning the reasons behind the alleged gap between law and reality, the doctrinal roots regarding leniency towards Indians, the extent to which women remained restricted to the domestic sphere, and the functioning of masculine honor. Finally, it describes the study’s sources, methodology and time period, highlighting their significance.
