In 1960, Barry Goldwater set forth his brief manifesto in The Conscience of a Conservative. Written at the height of the Cold War and in the wake of America's greatest experiment with big government, the New Deal, Goldwater's message was not only remarkable, but radical. He argued for the value and importance of conservative principles--freedom, foremost

This book is simple and easy to read. It lays out conservative values for everyone.

The afterword of this was wasted on Robert Kennedy jr. who hates conservative values anyway. He goes on to say that Goldwater has been hijacked by the right and religious. I know John Kennedy had respect for Goldwater and vice versa but dot let one of the most partisan hacks in the U.S. who believes in almost total government control Write the afterword in a book that is all about freedom.

I bought two more copies for family members for gifts, I just told them to skip RFK jr.

I didn't know why I ever became a conservative, until I read this book. Fellow conservatives if you want to know why you should continue to believe in our cause, this is the book to read, to memorize, to quote, to carry with you and wave gleefully at the next GOP rally in your town.

The book itself is worthy of 5 stars, because it's easy to read, straight to the point, and has historical value at this point. I, however, am not going to give this version of the book 5 stars, because of the bizarre afterword by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. He starts the afterword off by talking about Goldwater's relationship with JFK, which is interesting. But the afterword quickly devolves into a harangue against modern conservatives. It's just odd that a polemic against conservatives would be added as an afterword to this book.
