From the Back Cover:

In the modern period, Speakers and other presiding officers areexpected to remain impartial and above party politics; however,this was not always so, and in previous times they acted as key,though sometimes equivocal, government allies in the politicalmanagement of Parliament.

This volume is the first dedicated to the subject of Speakershipsince the mid-1960s, and offers an absorbing analysis of howSpeakers and the Speakership have operated in Parliament inBritain. Composed of papers from a conference held at the House ofCommons in April 2008, it explores the role of the Speaker and theLord Chancellor in the Westminster Parliament before the advent ofdemocracy, and sets it beside the practice in Dublin and Edinburghover the same period, and the more recent history of the role bothat London and at Washington. It concludes with a fascinatingdescription by the former Speaker of the House of Commons, BaronessBoothroyd, of her own tenure of the chair.
