Bourke on Burke — say that ten times fast. Or better yet, listen to the Bookmonger’s 10-minute conversation with Richard Bourke, author of Empire & Revolution: The Political Life of Edmund Burke.
We discuss why American conservatives admire Burke so much, what Burke liked about the American Revolution but hated about the French Revolution, and how Burke’s life in the grubby world of politics shaped his ideas as a thinker whose work we still read today.
