'David Carpenter deserves to replace Sir James Holt as the standard authority, and an unfailingly readable one too.' Ferdinand Mount, TLS 'An invaluable new commentary' Jill Leopore, New Yorker With a new commentary by David Carpenter "No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgment of his equals or by the law of the land." Magna Carta, forced on King John in 1215 by rebellion, is one of the most famous documents in world history. It asserts a fundamental principle: that the ruler is subject to the law. Alongside a new text and translation of the Charter, David Carpenter's commentary draws on new discoveries to give an entirely fresh account of Magna Carta's text, origins, survival and enforcement, showing how it quickly gained a central place in English political life. It also uses Magna Carta as a lens through which to view thirteenth-century society, focusing on women and peasants as well as barons and knights. The book is a landmark in Magna Carta studies. 2015 is the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta's creation - an event which will be marked with exhibitions, commemorations and debates in all the countries over whose constitutions and legal assumptions the shadow of Magna Carta hangs.

The 800th anniversary of Magna Carta falls in June 2015. In this work Dr Blick argues that this event should be the occasion for a reassessment of the past, present and future of the UK constitution. He draws on his experience as research fellow to the first ever parliamentary inquiry into the possibility of a written constitution for the UK. Dr Blick considers a series of English and UK historical texts from Anglo-Saxon times onwards, among which Magna Carta is the most prominent, which sought to set out arrangements for the governance of England and later the UK as a whole. He argues that they comprise a powerful tradition of written constitutional documents, and stresses the importance of the European dimension to their introduction and content. The author then considers the present nature of the UK constitution, describing the period of immense flux through which it has passed in recent decades, and the implications of this phase of change. Dr Blick identifies a need for a full written constitution for the UK as the next appropriate step. Finally, he discusses the democratic processes suitable to devising such a text, and what its contents might be. 'With this book Andrew Blick has made a major contribution to our understanding of how our system of government has worked in the past, how it is working ? or not working ? now, and what it could be in the future. Combing the centuries, he challenges many misconceptions and makes a powerful case for a written constitution. This volume is absolutely essential to anyone who wants to appreciate the real meaning of Magna Carta and why we should celebrate it.' Graham Allen MP, Chair, House of Commons Political and Constitutional Reform Committee 'Beyond Magna Carta brings together the utility of a road map with the fascination of a changing cartography of political thought ? all part of the constitutional development of these islands from the Great Charter of 1215 to the confusing aftermath of the Scottish Referendum of 2014. It is a superb work of explanation capped by intriguing suggestions of future possibilities.' Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield, FBA, Attlee Professor of Contemporary British History, Queen Mary, University of London.

Regarded by many as the classic work and primary source on Magna Carta this 1914 book from Professor William Sharp Mckechnie is a timely and essential introduction to the understanding of the historical background, origins and circumstances of "The Great Charter of the Liberties of England". It includes an in-depth historical introduction alongside the original Latin text, his translation and scholarly commentary. The Magna Carta was one of the foundations of English liberty. It was a prime influence on the early American colonists and the formation of the American Constitution in 1789, which became the supreme law of the land in the new republic of the United States. "A book remarkable alike for its solid learning, its fertility in suggestion, and its characteristic note of moderation and sweet reasonableness ... No one will close the book without feeling that his knowledge of Magna Carta has been greatly amplified and enriched ..." - The Times. "Of the great merit and value of the present essay there can, we think, be little doubt. The historical and juridical methods adopted by the author are sound and intelligent. His style is attractive and sufficiently concise, whilst his equipment for such a formidable task is very considerable. As the result of these elaborate studies, we have an entirely new view of the Great Charter in its legal and constitutional aspects and political environment." - Athenaeum. "Mr. McKechnie's work is of such great value that no historian can afford to neglect its clear and reasoned statements on all the questions which centre round the scene at Runnymede, and on the economic facts which led up to, and away from, that momentous conference." - Spectator. "Bears with it the collective wisdom of all the commentaries, ancient and modern, dispassionately scrutinised and sifted with close and varied learning on medieval institutions ... It is a great theme, and to say that it is at last adequately treated, from the constitutional side, is well merited praise." - Juridical Review. "Few more readable books - except to those who can read nothing but fiction - have ever been written." - Liberty Review. 'Students of the historical development of the law of the British Constitution owe a welcome to the appearance of this learned treatise, a work which brings the interpretation of a prime document of political liberty abreast of recent advances in knowledge which, in legal history no less than in other departments of inquiry, have brought in new views of old facts." - Scotsman. "Dr. McKechnie has given very satisfactory explanations of most of the knotty points of the Charter, and we may specially commend the sanity of his exposition of the constitutional clauses. Altogether his book is a useful and solid help in the study of the numerous difficulties involved in the text of the Great Charter." - Manchester Guardian. "It has already won its place as the standard treatise on the Great Charter." - Scottish Law Review. "Of permanent value to students of English constitutional history." - Annual Register. William Sharp McKechnie (1863 - 1930) was a Scottish scholar, historian, lecturer in Constitutional Law and History, and author of Magna Carta: A Commentary on the Great Charter of King John with an Historical Introduction. He later held the Chair of Conveyancing at the University of Glasgow from 1916 until 1927, and upon his retirement was awarded an honorary LL.D.

Mapping Memory in Translation aims to present a map of the application of memory studies concepts and approaches to the study of translation. Research located at the intersection of translation studies and memory studies has so far been somewhat dispersed, and does not embrace the full potential of the memory/translation nexus which this book aims to show. Each chapter focuses on a particular type or types of memory: personal memory, group memory, electronic memory, textual memory, national memory, transnational memory, institutional memory and cosmopolitan connective memory. The link with translation is illustrated by one or two case studies in each chapter covering both literary and non-literary translation and involving various different languages. Brownlie proposes an overall memory-based framework and range of concepts that could easily be applied in further case studies. The result is a book which offers a new global perspective on translation studies, as well as an insight into translation for memory studies scholars.

Retroactivity and the Common Law

This book analyses the common law's approach to retroactivity. The central claim is that when a court considers whether to develop or change a common law rule the retroactive effect of doing so should explicitly be considered and, informed by the common law's approach to statutory construction, presumptively be resisted. As a platform for this claim a definition of 'retroactivity' is established and a review of the history of retroactivity in the common law is provided. It is then argued that certainty, particularly in the form of an ability to rely on the law, and a conception of negative liberty, constitute rationales for a general presumption against retroactivity at a level of abstraction applicable both to the construction of statutes and to developing or changing common law rules. The presumption against retroactivity in the construction of statutes is analysed, and one conclusion reached is that the presumption is a principle of the common law independent of legislative intent. Across private, public and criminal law, the retroactive effect of judicial decisions that develop or change common law rules is then considered in detail. 'Prospective overruling' is examined as a potential means to control the retroactive effect of some judicial decisions, but it is argued that prospective overruling should be regarded as constitutionally impermissible. The book is primarily concerned with English and Australian law, although cases from other common law jurisdictions, particularly Canada and New Zealand, are also discussed. The conclusion is that in statutory construction and the adjudication of common law rules there should be a consistently strong presumption against retroactivity, motivated by the common law's concern for certainty and liberty, and defeasible only to strong reasons. 'Ben Juratowitch not only gives an account of the operation of the presumption, but also teases out the policies which underlie the different rules. This is particularly welcome. Lawyers and judges often seem less than sure-footed when confronted by questions in this field. By giving us an insight into the policies, the author provides a basis for more satisfactory decision-making in the future. ...The author not only discusses the recent cases but examines the question in the light of authority in other Commonwealth jurisdictions and with due regard to the more theoretical literature. This is a valuable contribution to what is an important current debate in the law. Happily, Ben Juratowitch has succeeded in making his study not only useful, but interesting and enjoyable.'

A revised edition of J. C. Holt's classic study of Magna Carta, the Great Charter, offering the most authoritative analysis of England's most famous constitutional text. The book sets the events of 1215 and the Charter itself in the context of the law, politics and administration of England and Europe in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Additionally, a lengthy new introduction by two of Holt's former pupils, George Garnett and John Hudson, examines a range of issues raised by scholarship since publication of the second edition in 1992. These include the possible role of Archbishop Stephen Langton; the degree of influence of Roman and Canon Law upon those who drafted the Charter; other aspects of the intellectual setting of the Charter, in particular political thinking in London; the Continental context of the events of 1212–15; and the legal and jurisdictional issues that affected the Charter's clauses on justice.
