Excerpt

The preparation of this book was commenced while I was studying Burke under the supervision of Dr. H. W. V. Temperley of Peterhouse, Cambridge, to whom I am greatly indebted. I am also very grateful to Professor J. Lyle Morison of Armstrong College for much encouragement and kindness, and to my wife, whose assistance greatly lightened the burden of preparing the book for publication. For the leisure which allowed of its writing I am indebted to the grant of a Research Scholarship by Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge.

Part of the material for Chapter IV has been published in the Cambridge Historical Journal, Vol. II, No. I, under the title, Edmund Burke and the Origins of the Theory of Nationality.

Considerations of space have made it necessary to give only those references which seem the more important and interesting. I have in general referred to the most easily obtainable editions.
