Editorial Reviews

Review

"Harris provides much useful historical background, for which readers of Burke will be grateful." Jerry Z. Muller, Times Literary Supplement

"Burke's earlier political writings are more measured, more rationally argued, and often more interesting than his assaults on the revolutionaries in Paris, while his essays 'A Vindication of Natural Society' and 'A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and the Beautiful' raise intriguing, if unanswerable, questions about Burke's loathing for Rousseau and his understanding of the way in which aesthetics and politics connect. So Ian Harris's selection of pre-1790 Burke is particularly welcome....the extensive notes and bibliography will be useful to students, and the volume as a whole is very welcome." Ethics

Book Description

As a thinker whose range transcended formal boundaries, Burke has been highly valued by conservatives as well as liberal socialists. This new edition charts the development of his thought and its importance as a response to the context of the events of his day.
