Dicey's Introduction is, or at least was, the bible of British constitutional law. Every solicitor, barrister and law student in the country must know, at least in broad outline, what Dicey thought about parliamentary supremacy. The book was cited as an authority in the Supreme Court only last year (Ahmed v HM Treasury (Nos 1 and 2)  UKSC 2, 5). It went through eight editions in Dicey's own lifetime, the last one appearing in 1915, and E.C.S.Wade produced a further couple of editions after World War II.
