John Whale

  • Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France was the first book about the nature of the unprecedented events taking place across the channel
  • It also brought into being discussions about the very identity of the British state and its people
  • The essays in this volume consider its reception, its engagements in the discourses of nationalism and toleration, its legacy to English and Irish writers of the Romantic period and its impact within our contemporary cultural and critical theory
  • This volume will be the ideal companion to Burke's Reflections for all students of literature, history, politics and Irish studies
