Oakeshott is a careful, erudite scholar who always maintains an academic aloofness about what he writes on. He has a placid, timid, style but as essayists goes he is a master of the craft. He converses ... that is what an essay should always aim to do. He uses sources sparingly but effectively. His insights are delivered a little slowly & he lacks a little bite, which suits his style to a degree but does make you wonder where his politics lie. He doesnt take a whole lot of chances but he does provike thinking, which is the raison d'etre of any philosopher.

With an informative foreword by Timothy Fuller and containing a few pieces that were not published anywhere else before, this is surely one of the cornerstones of Oakeshott's thought.
