This book advances new perspectives on legal history from South Asia. While earlier historians looked at the results rather than the performance of law, the contributors to this volume examine the socioeconomic and political contexts that shape law-making and its practice. The chapters interrogate ‘from below’ the framing of legal regimes, and explore the physical and epistemic violence of colonial law. The contributors look at the ways in which colonized subjects shape the contours of legal spaces through constant interchange, conflict, and adjustment between the rulers and the governed. PRINTED PAGES: 312.
