This work measures contemporary attitudes to the law - within and outside of the legal profession - to see how 17th century Englishmen defined the role of law in their society, to see what their expectations were of the law and how these expectations helped shape political debate - and ultimately determined political decisions - over the course of a very turbulent century.
