Burke, Select Works, Svazek 1
The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd., 2005 - Počet stran: 844
An appealing compilation of Burke's principal works, including On the Causes of the Present Discontents (1770), which treats the expulsion of Wilkes from Parliament and the value of political parties, the speech On Conciliation with the American Colonies (1775), which supported the cause of the colonists, and Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790), a classic criticism of the revolution and its actors. Burke [1729-1797] is considered a founder of modern conservatism. This is true to some extent, but not quite. He believed in popular government and recognized the inevitability of change. Indeed, he believed that a state that could not adapt to change was a state doomed to failure.
