9780198098478: Law and Social Transformation in India (Law in India)

This collection of works-previously published in a variety of journals and books-explores 'the basic architecture' of law in India. It is mainly focused on modern and contemporary India but also looks at the historical roots and evolution of contemporary law and society in India. The collection has a particular focus on identifying and accounting for the distinctive character of litigation in India, including its previously narrow subject matter and also its frequently protracted quality. A major theme is the way in which the legal system introduced into India by the British has co-existed with patterns of authority and dispute settlement that have their origins outside the state. The book is essentially about legal change, both within the official legal system and within 'society'. So there is discussion on the emergence over the last twenty years of corporate law firms along the lines of the firms of New York, and also the persistence and reinvention of novel forms of dispute settlement among groups as diverse as the diamond traders of Mumbai and the dhobis or washer folk of rural Rajasthan. The changing character of authority in rural India is a major theme of the collection.

Book Description Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2014. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. This work uncovers the historical roots and also the contemporary character of law and society in India. Steeped in years of fieldwork in both rural and urban India, the work places the new legal forces and processes introduced into India by the British alongside those that predated the colonial incursion and still have vitality today. Indian law is now undergoing a period of comparatively rapid change. Globalisation has brought dynamism to some of the law firms of India, particularly in Mumbai, and this impact is considered here. There is growing impatience with the slowness and inefficiencies of the courts?though, contrary to much opinion, litigation is seen here to be declining rather than growing. Meanwhile, there has been cumulatively dramatic change to authority in the countryside. The great flagship of Indian law continues to be the uniquely activist Supreme Court and its Public Interest Litigation, but equally intriguing are the group-based and sometimes law-like activities of washerfolk in rural Rajasthan, diamond traders in downtown Mumbai, and the myriad communities in the great `slums` of urban India. These are the themes taken up in this volume. Printed Pages: 336. Bookseller Inventory # 108886
