Though "modern Indian law" is actually of Western origin, Galanter here contends that independent India has accepted this mid-twentieth century legal system intellectually and institutionally. His thirteen articles, covering a wide range of issues in Indian society, explore the operation of modern Indian law, and explicate the ways in which a complex body of formal law accommodates and adjusts itself to local conditions to which it is alien.
