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.

Hager's alternative history is richly contextualized in the legal history of marriage and divorce, enabling her to offer a fuller account of competing strands of the Woman Question and revisionist readings of Dickens's novels.

This new volume originated in a collective project aimed at developing an alternative theoretical approach to the market monopoly theory that currently dominates studies of the legal professions. In contrast to theories linking the rise of professionalism to the development of economic liberalism, this book advances a political theory of lawyers' collective action. The contributors focus on areas where the engagement of lawyers has shaped the core of liberal politics; these papers can only enrich our understanding of the political importance of lawyers.
