Whigs and Liberals

Continuity and Change in English Political Thought

J. W. Burrow

A Clarendon Press Publication

This analysis of English political thought in the 18th and 19th centuries, organized around the concept of a Whig tradition, argues that the study of 19th-century liberal thought has taken too little account of its 18-century antecedents. Burrow considers the central ideas of Liberalism and how they evolved from the early 18th to the late 19th century.
