— Robert Grant, Sunday Telegraph
“Those who know Burke will enjoy the collection of mainly scholarly essays edited by Ian Crowe, with incisive analyses of Burke in his usual ‘compartments’: Ireland, India, America and France.”
— Sunday Times (London)
“Burke is usually regarded as a Conservative Icon. But New Labour has refuse to accept a Tory monopoly of Burke. Side by side there are essays in his praise by John Redwood and Lord Plant. Nothing could illustrate better the final extinction of British socialism. [A] helpful introduction to Burke.”
— Robert Blake, Daily Telegraph
“A fine overview of the subject.”
— Irish Studies Review
