About the Authors
  • Sir John Fortescue was undoubtedly the foremost English political theorist of the fifteenth century. This convenient volume brings together for the first time new editions of his two major works--In Praise of the Laws of England and The Governance of England--with references and suggestions for further reading. These works, arguably the earliest in English political thought, form a coherent argument for justice against tyranny and afford unique insights into the law and governance of fifteenth century England.

    • Student edition with suggestions for further reading, an introduction and biographical outline
    • Re-assessment of the work of a major figure in the history of English law and government
    • The first edition of The Governance made accessible in modern English
