This anthology brings together Burke's most important speeches, letters and pamphlets -reprinted uncut (with one exception), with substantial headnotes and introduction by Bromwich. The collection purposefully does not include Burke's two most widely read works. Taken as a whole, the collection demonstrates the depth of Burke's humanitarian concern, and presents Burke as forerunner to a tradition of liberal political thought that includes Tocqueville and Mill, rather than stressing his role as a founder of Anglo-American conservatism, as he has been widely understood.
