The Evils of Revolution (Penguin Great Ideas)

Edmund Burke


Written at a time whilst such a lot of Europe supported the French Revolution, Edmund Burke’s prescient and, on the time, arguable denunciation of its mob rule envisioned the fear, started the fashionable conservative culture and nonetheless serves as a caution to those that search to reshape societies via violence. all through background, a few books have replaced the realm. they've got remodeled the best way we see ourselves – and every different. they've got encouraged debate, dissent, warfare and revolution. they've got enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. they've got enriched lives – and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the nice thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose rules shook civilization and helped make us who we're.
