Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
In this source Barton examines the 'sources of Ifugao law
and its present status of development,' after which he sets forth the law itself. His
codification is divided into three major sections, entitled, respectively, 'The Family Law,
' 'The Property Law,' and 'Penal Law.' He distinguishes two sources of law -- 'taboo (which
is essentially religious) and custom.' The criminal law consists largely of taboos, whereas
the customary law, which 'is the more important from the greater frequency of its
application … embraces that which pertains to property, inheritance, water rights, and to a
great extent, family law and procedure.' This monograph is based on Barton's earlier field
work among the Ifugao.
