Edmund Burke, Volume II

This chapter examines the activities and career of British politician Edmund Burke during the period from 1786 to 1787. In September 1786, Burke attended the corruption trial of William Hastings in Parliament. Both men are self-righteous but they were psychological opposites. Analyses of Burke's writings during this period reveal that he felt keenly about his exclusion from the innermost circles of his Whig Party and the neglect of any permanent provision for his family.

Keywords:   psychology, William Hastings, corruption trial, Whig party
