This study provides a comprehensive examination of the legal justice system and the social structure of a unique Caribbean community. In addition to describing formal legal proceedings of the Bahamian Out-Island's court, the author provides detailed accounts of a traditional means of dispute settlements. By chronicling the substance of domestic, religious, social and interpersonal forums of dispute, the study is an important contribution to the field of Caribbean and West Indian studies. Of special interest to students studying comparative law, legal anthropology, Afro-American studies, and comparative cultures.
