Barnaby Keeney briefly traces the origins of the institution of judgment by peers on the continent, and then studies its development in England through the fourteenth century, showing the tremendous importance of trial by a jury of his peers in safeguarding the rights of the individual against the state. His book will prove highly interesting to students and scholars of mediaeval institutions and of legal and constitutional English history.
