A noted opponent of political thought based upon abstractions, he concentrated on those things which were presently real. Later in his life, his anti-rationalism and appeal to custom and tradition formed the bedrock of his opposition to the French Revolution.

Domestically, he opposed anything which he considered detrimental to the ancient constitution and the pillars of party and property which upheld it. This volume contains extracts from some of his writings and speeches on the British Constitution and the governance of the country. Ranging over the course of his political life, these selections dicuss such issues as the role of Party, the position of an MP, constitutional reform and state interference.
