Written at a time when most of Europe supported the French Revolution,
Edmund Burke�s prescient and, at the time, controversial denunciation of
its mob rule predicted the Terror, began the modern conservative tradition
and still serves as a warning to those who seek to reshape societies
through violence. Throughout history, some books have changed the world.
They have transformed the way we see ourselves � and each other. They have
inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened,
outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives � and destroyed
them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers,
radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us
who we are.
