About this Item

344 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. LAW. Sir Edward Coke (1552-1634), the first judge to strike down a law, gave us modern common law by turning medieval common law inside-out. Through his resisting strong-minded kings, he bore witness for judicial independence. Coke is the earliest judge still cited routinely by practicing lawyers. This book breaks new ground as the first scholarly biography of Coke, whose most recent general biography appeared in 1957, and draws revealingly on Coke's own papers and notebooks. The book covers Coke's early life and career, to the end of the reign of Elizabeth I in 1603 (a second volume will cover Coke's career under James I and Charles I). In particular, this book highlights Coke's close connection with the Puritans of England; his learning, legal practice, and legal theory; his family life and ambitious dealings; and the treason cases he prosecuted. Allen Boyer is senior appellate counsel for the Department of Enforcement of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. "[Boyer] brings his subject vividly to life and writes with verve adn imagination, presenting a well-structured, comprehensive and impressively researched book that serves both the legal historian and the general reader very well. Sir Edward Coke and the Elizabethan Age should be considered by any student of Elizabethan history because, in exploring a great lawyer and the law, it also sheds light on politics, religion, culture and society. I will not be alone in looking forward to the second volume."ÑRenaissance Studies (Key Words: Allen D. Boyer, Sir Edward Coke, Law, Biography, Jurisprudence, Elizabeth I, James I, Charles I, Puritans, Elizabethan Age, British History). Bookseller Inventory # 72225X1

The book covers Coke's early life and career, to the end of the reign of Elizabeth I in 1603 (a second volume will cover Coke's career under James I and Charles I).

From the Back Cover:

“[Sir Edward Coke and the Elizabethan Age] is well written with flashes of brilliance.”—Sixteenth Century Journal
“It would have been easy to provide a portrait of a successful if idiosyncratic lawyer, but Boyer gives us warts and all and manages to capture a real sense of the man himself.”—HISTORY
