Now ready, Third Edition, Crown 8vo. 78. 6d. ENGLAND'S CASE AGAINST HOME RULE: By A. V. DICEY, B.C.L., of the Inner Temple, Fellow of All Souls, and Vinerian Professor of English Law at Oxford.

PREFACE.

A wish has been expressed that the case of England against Home Rule should be presented in a cheap and popular form, and thus be brought to the knowledge of readers who may have neither time nor inclination to follow out into its details the

hole of a lengthy and (at times) technical line of argument. The great kindness of a friend has made it possible for me to meet this desire. This book is a rendering rather than an abridgment of the work of which it contains the substance. It reproduces the leading ideas of my argument against Home Rule. It, however, curtails many subsidiary considerations and omits much reasoning of a purely legal character. Any reader, therefore, who wishes to study in detail the objections, which from a lawyer's point of view can be brought against Mr. Gladstone's policy generally, and particularly against the Gladstonian constitution, must still seek for them in the original work.
