View all copies of this ISBN edition:

"Primary Sources in Political Thought" makes available a number of important but, until now, inaccessible texts in the history of political thought. Many of these have been overshadowed by longer or more famous works by the same authors, lost in the obscurity of periodical publication, never translated into English, or overlooked or neglected by modern scholars. The series aims to present definitive editions of these texts. This volume of political writings (1703-1791) collects addresses and pamphlets that capture high-churchman and Tory, John Wesley's view on a variety of political subjects including the nature of political power, his response to Richard Price's "Observations on Liberty", his views on slavery, on poverty, on the secession of the American colonies, and on the luxury of the rich. Together they aim to make clear the relevance of Wesley to subsequent developments in the abolition of slavery and the evolution of labour politics.
