About the Authors
  • Bolingbroke: Political Writings provides the first accessible, modernized and annotated texts of three of the most important works in eighteenth-century British political thought. These works, the Dissertation upon Parties, the letter "On the Spirit of Patriotism" and The Idea of the Patriot King together formed the first coherent platform of a political opposition movement in Anglo-American politics and influenced not only radicals in Britain, but the American Founding Fathers and the French Revolutionaries.

    • Was the first scholarly edition in English of any of Bolingbroke's writings
    • Brings together all of his most important political works in a single volume
    • Freshly-edited and fully-annotated texts with complete apparatus of introduction, further reading, textual and biographical notes
