Useful Cobbler, The: Edmund Burke and the Politics of Progress

Forside
SUNY Press - 363 sider
Neither a polemic nor a highly specialized study, this book is a comprehensive assessment of Burke s political thought. Using evidence from such neglected sources as Burke s essays on history and law and making full use of his extensive correspondence, the author places Burke in the context of developments in a number of areas of eighteenth-century British intellectual life, ranging from philosophy to literature, and presents him as a key figure in the evolution of the theory and practice of representative government.
