Edmund Burke, Volume II

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the career and activities of British politician Edmund Burke during the period from 1796 to 1797. During this time of inactivity from politics, Burke spent his time helping the poor children in Beaconsfield, England. His main project was an educational institution aimed at alleviating the plight of the children of those émigres serving or killed in the British Émigres Corps. The proposal was opposed by some of his opponents and this led Burke to write Thoughts and Details on Scarcity.

Keywords:   poor children, educational institution, Beaconsfield, England
