"For students and scholars, O'Keeffe presents the life and ideas of conservative British thinker Edmund Burke (1729-1797) within historical context. He explains Burke's philosophical contributions to conservative thinking, the reception by his contemporaries, and implications for politics and policy today. Discussion includes his ideas about empire, Ireland and England, relations with North American settlements, India, property, the de-sanctification of humanity, and his opposition to the French Revolution, as well as his many writings, including Reflections on the Revolution in France." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.
"Never in the field of Burkean studies has so much been said in so few words. O'Keeffe displays an enviable sense of structure, which enables him to combine in a small space a comprehensive exegesis of Burke's thought with a sweeping overview of secondary sources - and still have enough left over to show how Burke's ideas apply to today's world."
-Alex Boot, The Salisbury Review
