On Bourke’s Burke in the Senate House

The discussion organized by the Institute of Historical Research drew so large crowd that there were no seats left in the quite big room at the University of London’s Senate House. The topic was the newest book by Richarda Bourke, etitled The Empire and Revolution: The Political Life of Edmund Burke. The comments for the book were offered by Rachel Hammersley (Newcastle), Joanna Innes (Oxford), Robert Travers (Cornell), and Donald Winch (Sussex). The debate was chaired by Quentin Skinner, who – as I have already learned – is an excellent moderator.
