Habeas corpus is the principal means under the common law for the protection of personal liberty. Dr Sharpe examines the nature of judicial review exercised on habeas corpus, and explores the past, present, and potential uses of the writ.
The study focuses on English law, but also includes discussion of the law in other Commonwealth counfries. As the most comprehensive book written on this central issue of constitutional law, it will interest all who are concerned with the protection of civil liberty and deserves the special attention of those studying constitutional, administrative, and criminal law.
This second edition has been completely updated and includes references to many important current developments in the law of habeas corpus.
