"This portrait of the private Burke is based upon the largely unpublished correspondence of his wife Jane Nugent Burke and other family members, the published and unpublished correspondence of those who knew him, relevant public records, and local lore. Since Burke was an Irishman living in England and an outsider making his way between the English aristocracy and Whig peers, his domestic and private lives are important factors in his success. Private friendships had to do for Burke what family connections did for English public officials. In essence, the dynamic interrelationship between Burke's private life and public identity is a key to understanding his politics."--BOOK JACKET.
