As Americans we know much about our own constitution. Dicey now gives the reader a chance to learn more about the British constitution. Albert Dicey was a British jurist and constitutional theorist. DIcey was a graduate of Balliol College, Oxford and later became Vinerian Professor of English Law at Oxford and a leading constitutional scholar of his day. An Introduction to the Study of the Law of the Constitution was written in 1885. The principles it expounds are considered part of the uncodified British constitution. Dicey believed that freedom was under attack by modern incursions against the Rule of Law. Dicey writes that the freedom British subjects enjoy depends on the supremacy of Common Law, the sovereignty of Parliament, and the courts remaining impartial without governmental interference.
