The material is beautifully presented, the exemplary editing is unobtrusive, and the introduction sets the scene very effectively . (Parliamentary History)
The Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke is rather like a good many speeches of the great Whig orator himself - a notable achievement of stamina, of scholarship and of command over detail. (English Historical Review)
As one expects from Professor Marshall, this volume is very well produced. Marshall's general introduction and detailed introductory remarks at the beginning of each section are scholarly and eloquent. The explanatory footnotes offer a rich context for Burke's writings and speeches. (Reviews in History)
Professor Marshall has performed an invaluable service to the scholarly community for which one must pay tribute ... its publication will offer possibility of important reinterpretations of the role of Burke, and of Empire, within the development of British political thought. (Reviews in History)
Marshall's introductory essay is especially valuable because it does a masterful job of setting the stage for the included Burkean works ... and interesting introduction to the whole. (H-Net Book Review)
In the early writings and speeches in this volume, Burke raises the question of what legal standards should be applied in an impeachment trial. Students of American politics, and those interested in the Nixon and Clinton impeachment debates, will find much here to fascinate them. (H-Net Book Review)
A first-rate production. The work is handsomely bound, the paper of good quality, the notes are at the foot of the page, and there is an absolute minimum of printing errors. In addition, P.J. Marshall, the editor of this as well as the other volumes on India, has done an equally fine job of editing and annotating the various individual works, setting their contexts, and providing a brief but extremely useful and interesting introduction to the whole. (H-Net Book Review)
