`Review from previous edition Professor Lock gives us the first volume of what promises to be an important biography.' Derek Jarrett, LRB `meticulous and massive biography ... Helped by the bedrock of collected scholarly editions of Burke's letters, writings and speeches, he can raise this splendid monument. Refreshingly free of jargon and interpretative whimsies - he nods ritually to "otherness and alienation" only once - this is a study which will endure.' Toby Barnard, Times Literary Supplement `Burke's story is well and sympathetically told...gracefully and clearly written.' American Historical Review `a work of balanced judgement and painstaking research. F.P. Lock has produced the first volume of what will undoubtedly be the standard modern biography.' J.C.D. Clark, English Historical Review
