Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This is Volume 1 of the two volume work. Volume 2 follows
this one. The Annamese Code was promulgated by Emperor Gia Long in 1812. It was translated
into the French by Frigate Captain Georges Aubaret. The Code, which is the basic source of
recent Annamese law, differs from our Anglo-Saxon common law in its delineation of all
eventualities which may arise leaving the judge absolutly no discretion in his decision
making and thus preventing the rise of a body of jurisprudence. From the Code it would seem
that the main aim of Annamese society was to retain the status quo rather than to provide
for any change. More specifically, one can see clearly in the Code the importance of
various aspects of Annamese life.
