The half century before the calling of the Long Parliament in 1640 saw the bar undergo rapid growth and profound structural change. Wilfrid Prest's book examines the effects of these changes on the barrister's working life and explores the participation of barristers in the cultural , social, and political life of Elizabethan and early Stuart England. The book represents a detailed study of the most powerful and prosperous professional group in early modern England. This book is intended for scholars and students of early modern British history; especially social, cultural, and legal historians.
