"If you are not a Burke scholar…Edmund Burke: A Genius Reconsidered must be read first."
— The World & I
"This is the liveliest and most accessible one-volume biography of Edmund Burke."
— The Bookwatch
“Kirk’s scholarship is wide-ranging . . . and of course he brings to bear his close knowledge of the vast array of modern Burke scholarship. [His] . . . book is both elegant and eloquent, and it helps to fill a real need. ”
— Jeffrey Hart, National Review
“[T]he book serves as a good short introduction to Burke’s life and throught.”
— Library Journal
“No one knows more about Burke or writes of him with as much authority as did Russell Kirk.”
— M.D. Aeschliman, The Wanderer
“Edmund Burke is the very book for the non-specialist and the very book that no specialist will want to be without. It is at once a general introduction to the essence of Burke’s thought and a major reassessment of Burke in the light of the vast body of scholarship now available on him.”
— G.B. Tennyson, University Bookman
“Only a man of Kirk’s provenance and ambiance would have been appropriate for the job—to reassert, by way of Burke, ‘the natural law tradition [against] the positivism, nominalism and scientific materialism of modern liberal thought,’ as Carl Cone has put it.”
— C.P. Ives, Modern Age
