Other titles in the Conservative Leadership Series series:
The Best of Burke: Selected Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke
Synopses & Reviews
No conservative library is complete without the thought of Edmund Burke, the founder of modern conservatism.
Book News Annotation:
A specialist in the conservative Anglo-Irish political philosopher Burke (1729-97), Stanlis (Rockford College) compiles what he considers a representative sample of his writing, presenting whole pieces whenever possible. He ranges through his whole career, but emphasizes early work that has received less attention, including selections from An Abridgement of English History and early book reviews in the Annual Register. He does not provide an index. The 1963 edition was paper bound.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
No conservative library is complete without the thought of Edmund Burke, the founder of modern conservatism. And there is no better anthology of Edmund Burke's thought than The Best of Burke — the quintessential Burke reader.
From Burke's earliest works, to his thoughts on America and the British Empire, Ireland and Catholic Emancipation, and the French Revolution, The Best of Burke includes the most poignant and profound of Burke's political philosophy. For well-read conservatives, this is one of the few books that can truly be called essential.
The Best of Burke is Volume I in the Conservative Leadership Series by Regnery Publishing.
