This examine demanding situations the normal polarities used to explain British politics of the 1790s; Pitt as opposed to Fox, Burke as opposed to Paine, Church as opposed to Dissent, ruling type as opposed to operating classification, Jacobin as opposed to anti-Jacobin. Such polarities have been sedulously promoted by way of Pitt's wartime executive, which utilized 'Jacobin' shamelessly to all its critics and rivals, and hence foreshadowed the McCarthyite tactic of guilt via organization. the writer seeks to make the fewer strident yet extra persuasive modern voices back audible. he is taking heavily those that puzzled the need for Burke's campaign to spoil the French republic, and who deplored Britain's alliance with the partitioners of Poland.
