The author, a Russian general who participated in the conquest of
Turkestan under von Kaufman, was later governor of the Syr-Darya district.
During his administration he initiated a program for the collection of Kazakh
customary laws through personal interviews and the recording of native court
decisions. The present volume includes materials on the kinship system, family
relationships, property laws, marriage customs, social and legal norms, and a
collection of over six hundred proverbs. The researcher will find much
information on the social and economic life of the Kazakhs as well as the impact
of Russian conquest upon the native judicial customs in this source.
