Reflections on the Revolution in France: A Critical Edition
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe French Revolution is a defining moment in world history, and usually it has been approached by English-speaking readers through the picture painted of it by Edmund Burke, whose book is a classic work in a range of fields from history through political science to literature. Alone among recent versions, this edition reprints the text of the first edition of 1790, and shows how Burke amended it as his knowledge of the Revolution deepened.

PortraitJ. C. D. Clark is the author of several books, including "English Society, 1660-1832" and "The Language of Literature, 1660-1832."
Pressestimmen'Providing a fresh perspective on a much-studied classic, Clark's edition is both innovative and informative. The first modern edition to reprint the text of the first edition of the Reflections, it brings readers closer to the historic document published on November 1, 1790, relegating Burke's afterthoughts to an appendix. It is also the first edition in English to take the Reflections seriously as a book about what was happening in France, its ample annotation providing an authoritative guide to its historical context. This volume should become the starting point for serious study of the Reflections.' F. P. Lock, Queen's University
