Juridical encounters : Māori and the colonial courts, 1840-1852 by Shaunnagh Dorsett( )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1840 to 1852, the Crown Colony period, the British attempted to impose their own law on New Zealand. In theory Māori, as subjects of the Queen, were to be ruled by British law. But in fact, outside the small, isolated, British settlements, most Māori and many settlers lived according to tikanga. How then were Māori to be brought under British law? Influenced by the idea of exceptional laws that was circulating in the Empire, the colonial authorities set out to craft new regimes and new courts through which Māori would be encouraged to forsake tikanga and to take up the laws of the settlers. Shaunnagh Dorsett examines the shape that exceptional laws took in New Zealand, the ways they influenced institutional design and the engagement of Māori with those new institutions, particularly through the lowest courts in the land. It is in the everyday micro-encounters of Māori and the new British institutions that the beginnings of the displacement of tikanga and the imposition of British law can be seen"--Back cover

Legal histories of the British empire : laws, engagements and legacies by Shaunnagh Dorsett( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A 'new' approach to legal history in the British Empire is emerging. Rather than the traditional 'single site' approach taken by colonial legal historians, scholars are increasingly engaging in work which is pan-colonial, comparative, or which, if it is focused on a particular colony, seeks to place that site within the broader legal, political, cultural and intellectual frameworks of Empire. It focuses on the comparisons, the mobilities, the continuities and the ruptures of legal engagement across the globe. This book brings together established senior scholars with exciting newer authors from a range of disciplines, in order to present just such an approach to the law in and of Empire. Too often law is still relegated to one of a number of forces or trajectories - for example the movements of military forces and commodities that circulated and operated in Empire. This collection seeks, therefore, to investigate law's central place in the British Empire, and the role of its agents in embedding British rule and culture in colonial territories. Showcasing the richness and diversity of writing about law in Empire, it illuminates the continuities and discontinuities of law's effects in Empire and the ways in which law was a crucial element in the manifestation of Empire itself. It will be of considerable interest to legal historians, top historians of Empire, and anyone concerned with Empire's contemporary legacy."--
