Edmund Burke on Irish Affairs

Author: 
Janes, Regina
Credentials: 
Ph.D. Harvard, Professor of English Skidmore College

Edmund Burke, the great British statesman, had a long and uncomfortable relationship with Ireland beginning with the circumstances of his birth: He was born an Irishman. As a conservative thinker, as a fierce critic of revolutionary movements and political terrorism, He hoped to knead a British nation from imperial fragments, disparate and fissiparous polities and marginal nonanglophone kingdoms and duchies. This monograph by a distinguished researcher in Burkean language and thought deals with Burke’s attempts to redefine Ireland an integral part of Britain. The counter example of British India as used by Burke is also investigated in regards to Irish events and social movements.
