Burke and the Rockingham Whigs: the Ideology of Party and Opposition

To undertake an intensive study of Burke and the Rockingham Whigs, with special emphasis on the concepts of party and opposition. Through an examination of Burke's writings as well as the growing body of secondary literature, an analysis will be made of how Burke employed these terms, how he justified their legitimacy as political ideas, and to what extent his outlook matured from his early works such as Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents (1770).
