The Teduray (Tiruray) legal system is a thing of great elegance, and totally different from Anglo-American ones. Cooperative, rather than adversarial, it is highly effective in reconciling disputes and preventing violence, yet makes no use of either violence or coercive power. This book examines how the system works and why, illustrating every aspect with stories told by the people, and showing that it is based on their moral system that stresses every person continually scan their surroundings for how they can be helpful. It analyzes how the legal sages have authority that is real, but not based on power, and also discusses how the system is handicapped in dealing with changing needs and conditions.

Stu Schlegel is an anthropologist who spent nearly two wonderful years in a Philippine rainforest with the Teduray people (known until recently as “Tiruray”) in the mid-1960s — and wishes he could have never left!Review:
Tiruray Justice is a short but vital book about a small, little-studied and rapidly acculturating group of primitive Filipinos living in southwestern Mindanao, Philippines...Schlegel's book is impressive for his obvious compressive knowledge of this aspect of Tiruray culture...One is enormously grateful to Schlegel for his excellent study. (Professor Donn V. Hart, Anthropology, Syracuse University, in the Journal of the American Oriental Society, 1972.)
