Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The barristers were the most powerful and prosperous professional group in early modern England. This book systematically examines the barrister's working life during a half-century of rapid growth and structural change within the legal profession. Prest analyzes patterns of professional recruitment, training, and mobility and explores the participation of barristers in the cultural, religious, and political life of Elizabethan and early Stuart England. This is the first book to be published in the Oxford Studies in Social History, under the general editorship of Keith Thomas. The series, which will cover all periods and parts of the world, will include original works of scholarship on a broad range of subjects of interest to historians as well as to scholars working in related fields.

Synopsis:

Reconstructs the patterns of recruitment, training and mobility from the social origins and careers of some 500 lawyers in early modern England, while separate chapters explore the participation of barristers in the cultural, religious and political life of Elizabethan and early Stuart England.
