Drawing on research in anthropology, history and critical legal studies the contributors conceive of law as a human construct invoked by some at the expense of others in struggles over resources, power and authority. Studying law in colonial Africa illuminates who won and who lost in these struggles over resources and authority, and uncovers the role of customary law in this process. North America: Heinemann
