Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France

Edmund Burke

First published in 1790, Burke’s Reflections rejects the ideas that had inspired radical political change in France and were beginning to take root in England. In an extended “letter to a friend,” Burke uses a fiery rhetorical style to discredit what he saw as dangerous ideological developments before they sparked a revolution in his own country. He argues instead for a conservative society in which time-tested institutions are cherished, and change introduced slowly.
