Book Description
This book explores the emergence of colonial criminal law against the backdrop of the British conquest and pacification of north India. criminal justice is examined as an ideological and cultural enterprise in which the East India company sought to communicate new notions of sovereign right. Central to this enterprise was the claim that legitimate violence was the sole prerogative of the state, an assertion that brought colonial law into conflict with the competing claims of religious, patriarchal and paternal authority.
