Law, Liberty, and Parliament: Selected Essays on the Writings of Sir Edward Coke Edited and with an Introduction by Allen D. Boyer


Sir Edward Coke remains one of the most important figures in the history of the common law. The essays collected in this volume provide a broad context for understanding and appreciating the scope of Coke’s achievement: his theory of law, his work as a lawyer and a judge, his role in pioneering judicial review, his leadership of the Commons, and his place in the broader culture of Elizabethan and Jacobean England.
