I’m looking for a good book or two (or even an article) on a somewhat complicated topic. What I’m curious about is the intellectual history of specifically British contemplations of constitutionalism or common law in the 19th and 20th Century. I know some of the classic “primary texts” to look at, but I’m just curious about whether anyone has studied a more dispersed, general British consciousness on these subjects in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, about how British intellectuals and the general public imagined constitutionalism and common law around that time.
I know, it’s a rather convoluted request. But I’d be grateful to anybody who’s got a direction to point me towards.
