The history of the evolution of the British Parliament, essential to an understanding of modern democratic governments, is told in a concise account which includes the main facts to be found in standard constitutional histories and, in addition, synthesizes much of the recent research on the subject. The development is shown against the background of the people and the times of the periods covered. The history begins with the so-called “Model” Parliament of 1295 and continues through the first year of the “long” Parliament, 1641. The volume will help to bridge the division, usually too sharply made, between the medieval and modern eras of history, and should be valuable as collateral reading for students in the various fields of political and social science and literature.
