The Road from Runnymede Paperback / softback


For the eight hundredth anniversary of the Magna Carta, the University of Virginia Press presents the first paperback edition of The Road from Runnymede by A.E.

Dick Howard, originally published in 1968. In this volume, Howard explores the ways in which the Magna Carta's concepts, most notably due process, have been absorbed and put into practice by English and especially American society. He goes on to show how the idea of constitutional government evolved in America, moving beyond the foundations laid by the Magna Carta to adapt itself to the new republic's needs.
