Edmund Burke

Daniel Hannan, "Wall Street Journal""You won't find a more impressive political philosopher than the 18th-century MP who more or less invented Anglosphere conservatism.

" "Financial Times""[A] superb new biography. Norman aims to place Burke above Hume, Smith, Mill, Marx and Rawls in the pantheon.
