Allison employs an historical constitutional approach to assess doctrines and institutions in English constitutional law
A continental distinction in the common law : a historical and comparative perspective on English public law by J. W. F Allison( Book )

45 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of an autonomous English public law has been accompanied by persistent problems - a lack of systematic principles, dissatisfaction with judicial procedures, and uncertainty about the judicial role. It has provoked an ongoing debate on the very desirability of the distinction between public and private law. In this debate, a historical and comparative perspective has been lacking. A Continental Distinction in the Common Law introduces such a perspective. It compares the recent emergence of a significant English distinction with the entrenchment of the traditional French distinction. It explains how persistent problems of English public law are related to fundamental differences between the English and French legal and political traditions, differences in their conception of the state administration, their approach to law, their separation of powers, and their judicial procedures in public-law cases
Lectures introductory to the study of the law of the constitution by A. V Dicey( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Law of the Constitution has been the main doctrinal influence upon English constitutional thought since the late-nineteenth century. It acquired and long retained extraordinary legal authority, despite fierce criticism and many changes in law and government. By many, it was treated as a canonical text embodying axiomatic principles, or it was simply understood as indeed the law of the constitution; and even by its critics, it was still granted the status of orthodoxy. Basic constitutional principles became commonly conceived in Diceyan terms: parliamentary sovereignty was pure and absolute in being without legal limit; and Dicey's rule of law precluded recognition of an English administrative law and thus retarded its development for decades. Reaffirmed in each new edition of Dicey's canonical text, the constitution itself seemed static. The Oxford Edition of Dicey provides sources with which to reassess the extraordinary authority and lasting influence of Dicey's canonical text. This volume consists of Dicey's rare first edition in its original lecture form and of the main addenda in later editions. It facilitates a historical understanding of Dicey's original text in its context and of later changes when they were made. In introducing the first volume, John Allison reassesses The Law of the Constitution's authority and the kinds of response it has elicited in view of its original educative form and educational context."--Publisher's website
Lectures on comparative constitutionalism by A. V Dicey( Book )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oxford Edition of Dicey provides sources with which to reassess the extraordinary authority and lasting influence of Dicey's canonical text. Volume Two, Comparative Constitutionalism, provides a complement to Dicey's The Law of the Constitution. These largely unpublished comparative constitutional lectures were written for different versions of a comparative constitutional book that Dicey began but did not finish prior to his death in 1922. The lectures were a pioneering venture into comparative constitutionalism and reveal an approach to legal education broader than Dicey is widely understood to have taken. In Part I, The Comparative Study of the Constitution, topics discussed include constitutionalism in the English Commonwealth, and French, American, and Prussian constitutionalism. Part II, The Comparative Study of Constitutions, includes lectures on representative government, the separation of powers, and basic divisions between kinds of constitution. The volume begins with an editorial introduction examining the implications of these comparative lectures and Dicey's early foray into comparative constitutionalism for his general constitutional thought, and the kinds of response it has elicited --

A continental distinction in the common law : an historical and comparative perspective on English public law by J. W. F Allison( )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of an autonomous English public law has been accompanied by persistent problems a lack of systematic principles, dissatisfaction with judicial review procedure, and uncertainty about the judicial role. It has provoked a continuing debate on the desirability of distinguishing between basic categories of public and private law. In this debate, a historical and comparative perspective has been lacking. By way of a comparative historical jurisprudence and a Weberian method, this book introduces such a perspective from which to view the problematic English distinction between public and private law as a legal transplant from the Continental civil law to the English common law. It provides a novel application of that method to the distinction's contrasting development in England and France. It compares the relatively recent emergence of a significant English distinction with the entrenchment of the traditional and influential French distinction demarcating the leading system of droit administratif developed by the Conseil d'Etat. Emphasising systemic interconnections between theory, institutions, and judicial procedure in the development of legal system, it explains how persistent problems of English public law are related to fundamental differences between the English and French legal and political traditions differences in their conception of the state administration, their approach to law, their separation of powers, and their judicial procedures in public law cases. The book shows how a satisfactory distinction between public and private law depends on a particular legal and political context, a context that was evident in late 19th-century France and lacking in 20th-century England. It concludes by identifying the far-reaching theoretical, institutional, and procedural changes required to accommodate English public law
