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:

During this period the Bar grew rapidly and underwent profound structural change. The author examines the effects on the patterns of the barrister's working life, along with the changing balance between supply and demand for his services during this formative period.
