"'Lord Acton on Revolution' rehearses familiar Kirkean themes-the abiding importance of tradition, the moral purpose of politics, the danger of ideological obsession-with characteristic thoroughness and felicity.

It also represents a happy conjunction of author and subject. Acton, too, was historian and philosopher, moralist and visionary, a scholar-seer who chastened the public conscience even as he brought refinement to it. They are well met, Acton and Kirk; and in this dialogue down the years they have a theme worthy of their powers." - From the Introduction
