Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of concepts such as vessels, legislation, cases and newspapers that occur in the book The British Courts and Extra-territoriality in Japan, 1859-1899. The book looks at how British jurisdiction operated within Japan from its inception in 1859 until its abolition in 1899 and what extra-territoriality meant for the small British community there and transient visitors to Japan; particularly sailors crewing British vessels. It examines how the Courts regulated the British community's dealings with the Japanese and the other foreign communities' resident in Japan and how the Japanese authorities dealt with the Courts and the nature of prosecutions and suits brought against British subjects by Japanese and other foreign, businesses and individuals. The book compares the success rates of Japanese and non-Japanese litigants in a far broader range of cases before, largely, confirming Chang's conclusions.

Keywords: British jurisdiction; Chang; extra-territoriality; Japan
