I read this as a balance to "The Rights of Man", Paine's view of the positive impact of revolution on society. Burke essentially suggests caution in promoting change because of the sometimes adverse consequences which may follow and be difficult to rectify. The twentieth century revolutions perhaps better illustrate the point. I would recommend the idea and read both books.
