Apr 21, 2014 · Book Description. This book explores the legal culture of the Parsis, or Zoroastrians, an ethno-religious community unusually invested in the colonial legal system of British India and Burma. From the mid-nineteenth century until India's independence in 1947, Parsis became heavy users of colonial law, acting as lawyers, judges, litigants, lobbyists, and legislators. Mitra Sharafi’s book undertakes the most detailed and informed study of the main branches of Parsi legal history. In it, Sharafi neatly straddles two readerships, the Parsi specialist and the legal fields. Through this, Sharafi offers a work that is by a long way the best study in its field, carrying the subject a long way forward.
