Edmund Burke, Volume II

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines British politician Edmund Burke's relations with his Whig Party in 1791–92. His Reflections on the Revolution in France was well received across a wide spectrum of political opinion, including many members of his party. However, when Prime Minister Charles James Fox declared he was against the book, no-one from the opposition benches came to Burke's defence. Burke retaliated and started attacking Fox with the help of William Fitzwilliam in the hope of unifying the Whig Party.
