Jeffrey Goldsworthy is the pre-eminent modern defender of the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty. His book, The Sovereignty of Parliament: History and Philosophy, was a profound exploration of that doctrine, and was described by the late Lord Bingham as 'magisterial'. A new collection of essays, Parliamentary Sovereignty: Contemporary Debates, seeks to further and in some cases modify the argument of the earlier book, and to reply to critics. Taken together the two books constitute a remarkable achievement

Parliamentary Sovereignty: Contemporary Debates . As such, it is an intriguing and important development in constitutional design of relevance to drafters of bills of rights everywhere. The book discusses the contemporary issues of judicial governance, judicial appointments, the standards of conduct on and off the bench, the discipline and liability of judges and the relationship between judges and the media.

This book has four main themes: (1) a criticism of 'common law constitutionalism', the theory that Parliament's authority is conferred by, and therefore is or can be made subordinate to, judge-made common law; (2) an analysis of Parliament's ability to abdicate, limit or regulate the exercise of its own authority, including a revision of Dicey's conception of sovereignty, a repudiation of the doctrine of implied repeal and the proposal of a novel theory of 'manner and form' requirements for law-making; (3) an examination of the relationship between parliamentary sovereignty and statutory interpretation, defending the reality of legislative intentions, and their indispensability to sensible interpretation and respect for parliamentary sovereignty; and (4) an assessment of the compatibility of parliamentary sovereignty with recent constitutional developments, including the expansion of judicial review of administrative action, the Human Rights and European Communities Acts and the growing recognition of 'constitutional principles' and 'constitutional statutes'.
