Edited and introduced by Sandoz (political science, Louisiana State U.), this volume collects four essays examining the roots and evolution of the idea of liberty in Anglo-American constitutionalism and law. Topics include the significance of the Magna Carta for English constitutionalism; the "ancient constitution" and the sources of the common law jurisprudence of Sir Edward Coke (1552-1634), the traditions of constitutional discourse involved in the 17th century struggle between the English Parliament and the English Crown, and the manifestations of common law and ancient constitutionalism in legal thought from the Glorious Revolution of 1688 to the founding of the United States. This is a paperbound edition of a work first published in 1993. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
