Macaulay, Thomas Babington. A Penal Code Prepared by the Indian Law Commissioners, and published by Command of the Governor General of India in Council. London: Pelham Richardson, Cornhill, 1838. viii, 138 pp. Reprinted 2002 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 99-16486. Hardcover. New. Considered to be one of the greatest codes of law ever written, this important code shows the practical influence of Bentham. At the time of its drafting, the dominant East India Company's regulations conflicted with Muslim and Hindu law, and the common law itself, providing a chaotic landscape ripe for Macaulay's order and clarity. Macaulay [1800-1859], a British colonialist, member of Parliament and author of many renowned works including the History of England, was president of the Indian Law Commission and composed most of the code himself. This volume is a reprint of the London edition that was reprinted from the Calcutta edition of the original text of the Penal Code as issued by the Indian Law Commission, October 14, 1837.
