Summary
"This volume contains a collection of papers presented at the twenty-second British Legal History Conference held at the University of Reading. The conference coincided with the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta; the conference was thus concerned not only with Magna Carta itself but also with its enduring legacy. The theme around which this legacy is explored is that of challenges to authority and how these challenges result in the recognition of rights. Magna Carta now occupies a quasi-mythical status - particularly within common law jurisdictions - as an instrument which gave people liberty. Lord Denning described it as 'the greatest constitutional document of all times... the spirit of individual liberty which has influenced our people ever since'. Such a description omits the struggle which gave rise to these rights"--
