The author draws on detailed sources to illustrate the socio-economic uses for which parliament came to be valued in the preceding decades. In particular, the growing estimation of the legislative service was changing perceptions of what constituted the most vital aspects of government, and this led to a political demand for parliament's role to be regularised. The book identifies the discourse through which this took shape - a set of working concepts about the worth and status of representative forms, in which the interplay between parliament's economic and political capacities was forged and reinforced. The growing significance of the sovereign legislative function provided both the practical and philosophical impetus for parliament to claim a permanent place in political life."@en ;
