Bolingbroke and His Circle: The Politics of Nostalgia in the Age of Walpole
'Examining the acrimonious political debate during the administration of Walpole from the perspective of its social context, Kramnick focuses directly upon the political culture of Augustan Britain. As the title implies, the volume is chiefly concerned with analyzing the thought and behavior of Bolingbroke and his supporters. The result is the most comprehensive and persuasive general study thus far published of early eighteenth-century British political thought.
