Editorial Reviews

Review

"D. Alan Orr offers a more detailed and thoughtful discussion of the concept of allegiance and its opposite, treason, than has often been the case...commendable attention to detail and close textual reading...impressive..." Sarah Barber, Lancaster University, Historian

"Treason and the State is a welcome injection of life into scholarly debates that had long ago grown sterile." History

"The book is focused historical scholarship at its very best." Canadian Journal of Law and Society

"D.Alan Orr presents a lucid and interesting account of the ideological and political contexts that shaped the interpretation and application of treason law during the English Civil War....Orr has successfully revised an intelligent and well-written dissertation into a book that should appeal to all historians interested in the challenge of defining a British state." American Historical Review

"A fascinating and convincing account." Renaissance Quarterly

"...[an] impressive and learned new study." Canadian Journal of History

"Treason and the State is a sharply written and well-argued book. Orr has successfully contextualized the political problems that served as a backdrop to the rethinking of treason in early modern England. Orr has provided historians and legal scholars with a wonderful look into how ideology drives political action and innovation." Law and History Review

Book Description

This study traces the transition of treason from a personal crime against the monarch to a modern crime against the impersonal state. Prior to the Civil Wars of the 1640s English jurists construed the law of treason largely as a personal crime against the monarch. The book reveals how the events of the 1640s challenged pre-existing interpretations and led to a revised understanding of treason as a crime committed against 'the state' as an impersonal corporate entity.
