Description for Tribal Law and Justice

This book seeks to explain the principles of tribal law which Santals of the Santal Parganas accept as defining their civil rights and duties. These principles cover a wide range of subjects such as the rights of Santal men and women, the law of marriage and divorce, the claims which arise at the crises of birth, sickness and death. Moreover, the tribe as a whole is also an important subject for law and, besides explaining the rights of the village community, it describes in detail the functions of the tribal courts and the duties of village officials as well as the trial of Santal suits. The influence of Hindus, Muslims and Christians on Santal laws has been analysed as well. About The Author:- W.G.
