Description : The richness of Indian culture has left its stamp in all institutions designed by the mind of ancient India, and the judicial system formulated by ancient India is no exception to this general rule. Ancient India employs the term 'Dharma' to signify the concept of law, and this law is comprehensive in character in as much as it brings under its orbit not only the laws of physical science, but also social laws, which the experience, wisdom and intuition of highly developed personalities could discover as unalternable. Though the body of laws or 'Dharma' was traditional in character and from that point of view could not be altered by direct changes introduced by the State, yet law was continuously being made by the judges through interpretation. The institution of justice depended much on the part played by the jury and the jury was appointed from members of the society having proven character and command over law. All cares were taken to keep the judiciary free from the influence of the monarch and other powers of vested interest. The procedure of criminal law was equally significant. No one was exempted from punishment and it was also prescribed that if persons of a responsible position and social status and officers in the administration commit an offence they were required to undergo punishment more severe than that meted out to an ordinary citizen committing the same offence.Though ancient India had stated much about criminal justice and judiciary system, no author has as yet made an attempt to collect all the available materials from ancient Indian texts and give a comprehensive and exhaustive treatment of the system of administration of criminal justice as prevalent in ancient India. Starting from an analysis of the evolution of law and kingship, as recorded in Ancient Indian smrti texts, the epics and the puranas. Dr. Chakraborty has proceeded to expound the theory that was floated by ancient India- the theory that the king was considered to be the fountain head of justice. A detailed treatment of different stages of trail has found place in this work enhancing its value as a source book. Different types of evidences such as document, witness and conduct has been analysed.The author has shown how ancient India did formulate a clear-cut definition of Crime beginning from defamation and ending with criminal assault and murder and prescribed appropriate punishments for those crimes.

Description : The study of crime in ancient India is not a matter of antiquarian interest only. This study may be found to be profitable by the society because of its having a certain amount of bearing on the problem of combating the growing criminality of our present day society. It may have some lessons or at least some hints, to give on its solution. In fact, there is no human phenomenon which is more baffling than homicide and suicide. It has always puzzled and intrigued the thinking man to this day there is not a single undivided opinion on these aspects of crime. Although homicide has been universally condemned all through the ages by our ancient seers and philosophers it has continued unabated and so also its implications on the society. Crime, according to modern legal definition, is an act forbidden by law under pain of punishment. But, it is the firm and abiding conviction of the writers of Dharmasastra of all climes and ages that it is beyond the cognitive faculties of human beings, individually or collectively, to know the why of rightfulness or wrongfulness of any human action. The present illuminating study is the first of its kind to focus attention on this unusual subject which forms the topic of its study and tackles it from every conceivable angle. In it origins of homicide have been traced in history; its various manifestations in different religions and societies have been discussed in detail; its modes, past and present, have been outlined and enumerated; views for and against have been presented and, above all, the need for positive action in planning and executing measures to curb this obnoxious evil has been emphasised.

Description : Although the literature and cultural practices of the South Asian region demonstrate a rich understanding of criminology, this handbook is the first to focus on crime, criminal justice, and victimization in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. South Asia’s rapid growth in population and economy continues to introduce transformations in social behaviors, including those related to criminality and victimization.

This collection of chapters penned by scholars from all eight of the South Asian nations, as well as the US, UK, Australia, and Belgium, will advance the study and practice of criminology in the South Asian region and carry implications for other regions. The Routledge Handbook of South Asian Criminology provides a wealth of information on criminological issues and their effect on the countries and governments’ efforts to mitigate them. It is essential reading for students and scholars of South Asian criminology, criminal justice, and politics.

Description : This book explores the interaction between science and society and the development of forensic science as well as the historical roots of crime detection in colonial India. Covering a period from the mid-19th to mid-20th century, the author examines how British colonial rulers changed the perception of crime which prevailed in the colonial states and introduced forensic science as a measure of criminal identification in the Indian subcontinent. The book traces the historical background of the development and use of forensic science in civil and criminal investigation during the colonial period, and explores the extent to which forensic science has proven useful in investigation and trials. Connecting the historical beginning of forensic science with its socio historical context and diversity of scientific application for crime detection, this book sheds new light on the history of forensic science in colonial India. Using an interdisciplinary approach incorporating science and technology studies and history of crime detection, the book will be of interest to researchers in the fields of forensic science, criminology, science and technology studies, law, South Asian history and colonial history.

Description : Ancient Rome is the only society in the history of the western world whose legal profession evolved autonomously, distinct and separate from institutions of political and religious power. Roman legal thought has left behind an enduring legacy and exerted enormous influence on the shaping of modern legal frameworks and systems, but its own genesis and context pose their own explanatory problems. The economic analysis of Roman law has enormous untapped potential in this regard: by exploring the intersecting perspectives of legal history, economic history, and the economic analysis of law, the two volumes of Roman Law and Economics are able to offer a uniquely interdisciplinary examination of the origins of Roman legal institutions, their functions, and their evolution over a period of more than 1000 years, in response to changes in the underlying economic activities that those institutions regulated. Volume II covers the concepts of exchange, ownership, and disputes, analysing the detailed workings of credit, property, and slavery, among others, while Volume I explores Roman legal institutions and organizations in detail, from the constitution of the Republic to the management of business in the Empire. Throughout each volume, contributions from specialists in legal and economic history, law, and legal theory are underpinned by rigorous analysis drawing on modern empirical and theoretical techniques and methodologies borrowed from economics. In demonstrating how these can be fruitfully applied to the study of ancient societies, with due deference to the historical context, Roman Law and Economics opens up a host of new avenues of research for scholars and students in each of these fields and in the social sciences more broadly, offering new ways in which different modes of enquiry can connect with and inform each other.
