Overview

Previously relegated to the wings of the American political stage, conservatism now plays a leading role in public life, thanks largely to the dynamic legacy of Ronald Reagan. But despite conservatism's emergence as a powerful political force in the last several decades, questions remain about its meaning and nature. In examining these questions, The Future of Conservatism reveals the forces that unite, and the tensions that divide, conservatives today. Edited by noted Reagan scholar Charles W.
