Read full description of the books:
Edmund Burke (1729 -1797) was a member of the British Parliament during one of the most important periods in history. Burke is often remembered for his support of the American Revolution and his opposition of the French Revolution. Burke wrote his criticisms of the French Revolution in a famous memoir titled Reflections on the Revolution in France. Burke warned the Revolution would cause more harm than good. The Reign of Terror that followed the Revolution proved Burke’s cautions to be well founded.
A table of contents is included.
Read information about the authorEdmund Burke was an Anglo-Irish statesman, author, orator, political theorist, and philosopher who served for many years in the British House of Commons as a member of the Whig party. He is mainly remembered for his support of the American colonies in the dispute with King George III and Great Britain that led to the American Revolution and for his strong opposition to the French Revolution. The latter made Burke one of the leading figures within the conservative faction of the Whig party (which he dubbed the "Old Whigs"), in opposition to the pro-French-Revolution "New Whigs", led by Charles James Fox. Burke also published a philosophical work where he attempted to define emotions and passions, and how they are triggered in a person. Burke worked on aesthetics and founded the Annual Register, a political review. He is often regarded by conservatives as the philosophical founder of Anglo-American conservatism.
