In a fresh appraisal of the fundamental doctrines of constitutional law, Trevor Allan examines the nature of the rule of law and the separation of powers. He refutes the traditional doctrine of unlimited parliamentary sovereignty, challenges the orthodox distinction between law and convention, and considers the character of common law rights and the nature and purpose of judicial review of administrative action.
