    This is a critical collection of essays on the origin and nature of the idea of liberty.The authors explore the development of English ideas of liberty and the relationshipthose ideas hold to modern conceptions of rule of law. The essays address earlymedieval developments, encompassing such seminal issues as the common-law mind of the sixteenth century under the Tudor monarchs, the struggle for power andauthority between the Stuart kings and Parliament in the seventeenth century, and therole of the ancient constitution in the momentous legal and constitutional debate that occurred between the Glorious Revolution and the American Declaration ofIndependence.
