Description

The first comprehensive presentation of Edmund Burkes thinking on international relations, including edited selections of Burkes writings on Ireland, America, and revolutionary France.. This book provides the first comprehensive presentation of Edmund Burkes thinking on international relations. While Burkes writings and speeches have been the subject of much analysis and controversy, his perspective on international relations has not been fully addressed by the scholarly community. Fidler and Welsh establish Burke as a classical thinker on international relations, and help to situate his thinking within current international relations theory. Their detailed introduction is followed by edited selections from Burkes writings and speeches on Ireland, America, India, and the French Revolution. Edmund Burke has long been regarded as one of the most important political thinkers of the late eighteenth century, and his writings and speeches continue to inspire and challenge to the present day. But Burkes thinking on international relations has not been fully addressed by the scholarly community.
This situation is ironic given that so much of Burkes political efforts and thoughts were directed at international events and controversies, particularly British policies toward Ireland, America, India, and revolutionary France.David Fidler and Jennifer Welsh provide the first comprehensive presentation of Burkes thinking on international relations in Empire and Community: Edmund Burkes Writings and Speeches on International Relations . They analyze in detail Burkes perspective on international relations developed during his long and distinguished parliamentary career, establishing him as a classical thinker on international relations; they also analyze where Burkes perspective on international relations belongs theoretically in the contemporary study of the subject. These analyses are followed by edited selections from Burkes writings and speeches on Ireland, America, India, and the French Revolution. Empire and Community gives Burkes thinking on international relations the emphasis and scholarly attention it deserves.
