Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article examines the courtroom as a site where class hegemony and domination is reproduced. Courtrooms brought together people from different backgrounds, such as large and small landowners, and farmers and landless laborers. Relying largely on court documents and newspaper reports, the author examines which parties were involved in what kinds of litigation, and what were the judgments and sentences. It is noted how the court played an educational role in "civilizing" the poorer classes and engendering a paternalistic role and attitude among the landed magistrate class who, in turn, became more wedded to the imperial state.
