In turn, Tory minister, Jacobite renegade, English philosopher and anti-minister, Bolingbroke has elicited mixed reactions from his compatriots, both contemporaries and historians. In this book, Bernard Cottret discusses his political writings in the context of contemporary thought in England and France. His analyses of "A Dissertation upon Parties" and "The Idea of a Patriot King" are supported by a full reprint of the texts making available these significant documents of mid-18th-century political thought.
