English summary: Kerstin Weiand uses the example of the rule of Elizabeth I of England (1558-1603) to study how individual historical persons come to be viewed as timeless, larger-than-life models. Elizabeth I of England (1558-1603) was one of the most important key figures of English and later British identity. Even to the present day she is looked on as an embodiment of national splendor. In this volume, Kerstin Weiand uses the example of Elizabeth I to study how individual historical persons come to be viewed as timeless, larger-than-life models. She includes in her study die communicative prerequisites of such a process as well as the relationship between schemes of political interpretation, actors and actions. This creates new perspectives from communication and the history of culture and combines them with classical questions from political history. German description: Erinnerungen an historische Ereignisse oder Personen pragen in einem hohen Masse das kollektive Selbstverstandnis und die politische Mentalitat von Gesellschaften. Elisabeth I. von England (1558-1603) ist ein herausragendes Beispiel hierfur. Als letzte Monarchin der Tudor-Dynastie wurde Elisabeth zu einer der wichtigsten Schlusselfiguren einer englischen, spater britischen Identitat und gilt bis in die Gegenwart hinein als heroische Verkorperung nationaler Grosse. Kerstin Weiand legt den Fokus auf einen bislang wenig beachteten Aspekt dieser Erinnerungskultur, indem sie mit Blick auf Elisabeth I. exemplarisch danach fragt, wie sich einzelne historische Personen zu uberzeitlich wirkmachtigen Leitbildern entwickelten. Dabei bezieht sie auch die kommunikativen Voraussetzungen dieses Prozesses sowie das Verhaltnis von politischen Deutungsmustern, Akteuren und Handlungen in die Untersuchung ein und verbindet so neue kommunikations- und kulturhistorische Perspektiven mit "klassischen" politikgeschichtlichen Fragestellungen. Mit der Untersuchung von verschiedenen 'Kommunikationsraumen' entwickelt Weiand dabei ein dynamisches Analysemodell, das okkasionelle und strukturelle Aspekte von Offentlichkeit verbindet und den Blick auch auf europaische Transferprozesse lenkt. Auf diese Weise erganzt bzw. revidiert Weiand die Forschungen zum Elisabethmythos in zentralen Aspekten. Neben den thematisch engeren Ergebnissen zur Entstehung des Elisabethmythos untersucht sie ausserdem grundlegende Erkenntnisse zum wechselseitigen Bedingungsverhaltnis von politischen Normen und politischem Handeln und die Moglichkeiten und Grenzen furstlicher Handlungsraume in der Fruhen Neuzeit.

This book examines the development of the English patent system and its relationship with technical change during the period between 1660 and 1800, when the patent system evolved from an instrument of royal patronage into one of commercial competition among the inventors and manufacturers of the Industrial Revolution. It analyses the legal and political framework within which patenting took place and gives an account of the motivations and fortunes of patentees, who obtained patents for a variety of purposes beyond the simple protection of an invention. It includes the first in-depth attempt to gauge the reliability of the patent statistics as a measure of inventive activity and technical change in the early part of the Industrial Revolution, and suggests that the distribution of patents is a better guide to the advance of capitalism than to the centres of inventive activity. It also queries the common assumption that the chief goal of inventors was to save labour, and examines contemporary criticism of the patent system in the light of the changing conceptualisation of invention among natural scientists and political economists.

McIlwain, Charles Howard. Constitutionalism: Ancient and Modern. Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1940. ix, 162 pp. Reprint available June 2005 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN 1-58477-550-5. Cloth. $75. * Upon publication The Law Quarterly Review praised this book, noting that "great learning is manifest in these pages" (cited in Marke). McIlwain [1871-1968] examines of the rise of constitutionalism from the "democratic strands" in the works of Aristotle and Cicero through the transitional moment between the medieval and the modern eras. He concludes with a discussion of the forces of despotism that were threatening constitutionally based individual freedom in the 1930s. One of the twentieth century's most distinguished scholars of Anglo-American constitutional history, McIlwain was Eaton Professor of the Science of Government in Harvard University and the author of The High Court of Parliament and Its Supremacy (1910) and The American Revolution: A Constitutional Interpretation (1924). Both of these are available as Lawbook Exchange reprints.
