EVERYMAN'S BOOK OF THE MONTH
In this single volume Burke's greatest work, Reflections on the Revolution in France, is accompanied by a comprehensive selection if his other writings, including pamphlets, speeches, public letters, private correspondence and, for the first time, two important and previously unpublished early essays. Burke should be a core part of every civilised library, and this is an essential collection for students, for scholars, and for the general reader.
[Burke's] soul revolted against tyranny, whether it appeared in the aspect of a domineering monarch and a corrupt court and parliamentary system, or whether, mouthing the watchwords of a non-existent liberty, it towered up against him in the dictation of a brutal mob and wicked sect. No one can read the Burke of liberty and the Burke of authority without feeling that here was the same man pursuing the same ends, seeking the same ideals of society and government, and defending them from assaults, now from one extreme, now from the other.
