AbstractThis data set consists of archival records collected from the Shoa High Court in Ethiopia in order to better understand the country's tenure system as well as the position and intentions of the Ethiopian imperial government. This data set is problematic, however, as by 1967 the jurisdiction of the court had changed from being a court of appeal for the country as a whole to a court of appeal for Shoa alone. Thus the data are not consistent across time. However, for most of the cases there is a complete summary of the dispute, which is a valuable record.
AbstractThe purpose of this study is to better understand the country's tenure system as well as the position and intentions of the Ethiopian imperial government.
MethodsArchival records were collected from the Shoa High Court in Ethiopia. The researcher took a standard random sampling of every twenty-fifth case from all of the Shoa High Court cases from 1947, 1957, 1967 and 1974.
MethodsThis study consists of 10 PDF files. High-Court-66--a-.pdf, High-Court-66--b-.pdf, and High-Court-66--c-.pdf include scanned court records. High-Court-1959-a-.pdf, High-Court-1959-b-.pdf, High-Court-1959-c-.pdf, and High-Court-1959-d-.pdf are notes from the PI on different court cases.
