Edmund Burke, eighteenth-century Irishman and politician, was no 'C/conservative', yet 'Burkean conservatism' is seen as the core of modern C/conservatism. For the first time, this volume shows how Burke's legacy was transformed over the course of the nineteenth century to create one of our most significant theories of modern politics and thought.
