Bolingbroke: Political Writings provides the first accessible, modernized and annotated texts of three of the most important works in eighteenth-century British political thought. These works, the Dissertation upon Parties, the letter On the Spirit of Patriotism and The Idea of the Patriot King together formed the first coherent platform of a political opposition movement in Anglo-American politics and influenced not only radicals in Britain, but the American Founding Fathers and the French Revolutionaries.
