The Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke

This volume completes the widely acclaimed collection of Edmund Burke's Indian Writings and Speeches set within the series as a whole, as included in the two previous volumes V and VI. It provides a full exposition of Burke's views on India, including speeches and a report made by Burke at the trial of Warren Hastings on an impeachment from 1789-1794. It contains much of Burke's thoughts on other issues, in particular his views on enforcing the rule of justice throughout the world.
