Goldsmith, an English Jew, attacks the aggressive efforts of Pitt's England and other European powers to suppress the French Revolution, which he defends vigorously. Later Goldsmith's revolutionary ardor would cool, and he would write several pamphlets attacking the Revolution and Napoleon. This Dublin printing issued in the same year as the London first edition.
