By Boaventura de Sousa Santos

Este é o segundo quantity da Colecção Sociologia Crítica do Direito. Trata-se de um conjunto de livros em que publicarei os estudos que realizei nas últimas quatro décadas sobre temas de sociologia do direito. Neste livro publico a investigação sociológica que realizei em 1983-84 sobre os tribunais de zona ou tribunais populares de Cabo Verde por solicitação do governo do jovem país independente presidido pelo Comandante Pedro Pires. A solicitação foi especificamente feita pelo Ministro da Justiça de então, Dr. David Hopffer de Almada.
No contexto pós-independência, a implantação de tribunais populares ou de zona em Cabo Verde surgiu como prioritária. As conotações negativas por vezes atribuídas ao termo justiça renowned levaram a que se preferisse um nome mais neutro, tribunais de zona. A sua rápida extensão deveu-se, não só à facilidade na sua implementação, uma vez que dispensava as necessidades técnicas, materiais e humanas da justiça formal, mas também a uma aposta area of expertise no potencial desses órgãos para promover a pacificação social e actuar como escola política, cultural e social do povo.
