Overview

This book explores the nature of the Crown in its legal and political context. Here, the term The Crown is being used, not as a direct reference to the Queen, but as a reference to the central power of the State which exercises legal and political authority. Since the Crown has not been the object of extensive literature with pride of place on constitutional law courses, this book aims to redress this state of affairs by drawing together essays that explore what the Crown is, or might be, and the critical issues relating to it.
