Overview

Based in a highly profitable fur trade, the seventeenth century Dutch criminal justice system of the upper Hudson River Valley regulated the community with an eye toward not only maintaining peaceful social relations, but also preserving the economic system that allowed the community to survive. This work examines the punishment practices of the Beverwijck/Albany court during the seventeenth century, delineating changes that occured in those practices amid fluctuations in the fur trade and after the English conquest of New Netherland in 1664. This study shows that punishment practices were integrally linked to the economic status of the community and, after English conquest, to the introduction of English law.

Booknews
Sullivan (criminal justice, State U. of New York-Albany) explains that the criminal justice system of the upper Hudson River Valley was concerned with maintaining not just peaceful social relations, but also the highly profitable fur trade on which the colony depended. He examines the punishment practices of the Beverwijck/Albany court and how they changed with fluctuations in the fur trade and after the English conquest and imposition of their own law in 1664. Granted the 1997 Hendrick's Manuscript Award. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
