This edition first published in 1960. The revival of interest in the thought of Burke was one of the justifications for the publication of a second edition of Professor Cobban’s study of the political and social ideas of Burke and his closest disciples, the Lake Poets.

Burke’s thought has both historical and permanent significance: fundamentally his works are as relevant today as when they were first written. In this book Burke’s ideas are discussed without the uncritical adulation they receive in some quarters, and those of the Lake Poets without the undue depreciation from which they used to suffer.

This title will be of great interest to students of politics, philosophy and history.
