Performing Justice by Elizabeth A. Wood

Book Description

Rather than humanizing difficult issues, the trials increasingly made their subjects (alcoholics, boys who smoked, truants) into objects of shame and dismissal. By the end of the decade and the early 1930s, the trials had become weapons for enforcing social and political conformity. Their texts were still fictional - indeed, fantastical - but the actors and the verdicts were now all too real
