Rajan Khatiwoda, Simon Cubelic, Axel Michaels: The "Mulukī Ain" of 1854. Nepal’s First Legal Code

The Mulukī Ain of 1854, Nepal's first legal code, covers nearly all aspects of criminal, private, public, religious, and customary law. The authors of the second volume of Documenta Nepalica translate and examine this unique source for 19th-century life in Nepal and for the place of Hindu jurisprudence in the legal cultures of South Asia.
