BPC Professor Publishes Book

Ian Crowe

By Mandy Corbin

MOUNT VERNON—Dr. Ian Crowe, Brewton-Parker College associate professor of history, is the author of a forthcoming book, Patriotism and Public Spirit: Edmund Burke and the Role of the Critic in Mid-Eighteenth-Century Britain, which will be released this July by Stanford University Press.

The publication is an innovative study of the formative influences shaping the early writings of the Irish-English statesman Edmund Burke and an early case-study of the relationship between the business of bookselling and the politics of criticism and persuasion. Through a radical reassessment of the impact of Burke's "Irishness" and of his relationship with the London-based publisher Robert Dodsley, the book argues that Burke saw patriotism as the best way to combine public spirit with the reinforcement of civil order and to combat the use of coded partisan thinking to achieve the dominance of one section of the population over another.

Crowe is also contributing editor of other Edmund Burke essays, including An Imaginative Whig: Reassessing the Life and Thought of Edmund Burke (University of Missouri Press, 2005) and The Enduring Edmund Burke (ISI Books, 1997). He is also executive editor of the journal Studies in Burke and His Time, a Senior Fellow of the Russell Kirk Center, and Director of the Edmund Burke Society of America.
