In the book, Burke presents the points with which he disagrees with the members of the National Assembly who were responsible for the French Revolution. Originally written as a letter in response to a young Parisian and later expanded upon and published in book format, "Reflections on the Revolution in France" presents a compelling rationale against the war.

Informacje o autorze (2005)

Born in Ireland in 1729, Edmund Burke was an English statesman, author, and orator who is best remembered as a formidable advocate for those who were victims of injustice. He was the son of a Dublin lawyer and had also trained to practice law. In the 1760s, Burke was elected to the House of Commons from the Whig party. Burke spent most of his career in Parliament as a member of the Royal Opposition, who was not afraid of controversy, as shown by his support for the American Revolution and for Irish/Catholic rights. His best-known work is Reflections on the French Revolution (1790). Some other notable works are On Conciliation with the American Colonies (1775) and Impeachment of Warren Hastings (1788). Edmund Burke died in 1797.
