Reflections on the Revolution in France is a slashing attack on the French Revolution by one of Britain’s most famous statesmen. Liberty and social order, Burke argues, are maintained by the traditional rights and duties embedded in custom and law. And when these traditions are overthrown in revolutions, society is threatened with chaos, bloodshed and despotism.

Would you try another book from George H. Smith and/or Craig Deitschman?

No.

Would you be willing to try another one of Craig Deitschman’s performances?

Perhaps.

Any additional comments?

The use of stage accents for persons of non-English origin detracted significantly from the value of the work in my eyes. It's written in English; just read it in English, either standard British or standard American.
