In British constitutional law, the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty maintains that Parliament has unlimited legislative authority. Critics have recently challenged this doctrine, on historical and philosophical grounds. This book describes its historical origins and development and identifies the reasons why it was adopted, examines its current legal basis, and responds to the critics.

Professor Jeffrey Goldsworthy is Associate Professor of Law at Monash University, Australia
"... Goldsworthy provides a brilliant survey of parliamentary sovereignty in England and how the theory and the institution evolved and altered over time. In a masterful recitation of historical legal cases, statutory law, and philosophical theory Goldsworthy provides the case for parliamentary sovereignty from Bracton through Blackstone and the nineteenth century. ... his clean, uncluttered prose knits together the analysis of the cases with contemporary political philosophy to make a most readable text from dense material. He has done a superb job."
--American Journal of Legal History, January 2000
