Publisher description -- Coke, "incorruptible and respected," was a lawyer, member of Parliament, solicitor general, twice Speaker of the House of Commons, and Attorney General and Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas and of the King's Bench. Coke was the force behind the Petition of Right, which iterated the great traditional liberties of the English people from abuses of arbitrary power, including the power of the Crown, and which became part of the British Constitution and one of the primary bases of the full flowering of English liberties among the founders of the American republic. It was Coke's astonishing task to set down the whole of the law--from Magna Carta to land law to criminal law, and the system of court procedure, from the High Court of Parliament down to the lowest courts of the realm--on paper, for students to read and see. The Institutes derived their authority in part from great authority accorded the Reports, which themselves solidified the modern understanding of case law. Together, these delineate the origin and nature of English law and the profound interrelationship in the English tradition of custom, common law, authority, and individual liberty
