Overview

Defining Conservatism is a passionate appeal to a political movement that is re-examining its identity as Republicans set their sights on 2010 and beyond. A dedicated young conservative, Jonathan Krohn presents conservative philoso¬phy’s basic tenets in this remarkably earnest and impeccably reasoned primer. This book, clear and informative, is a history lesson, a manifesto, and a roadmap for the future. It is Krohn’s rallying call to action not just for conservatives, but for anyone interested in the political state of our nation.

In Defining Conservatism, Krohn challenges “government expansionists,” whose faith in Wash¬ington and the basic pillars of government exceeds their faith in the individual. At the same time, he boldly stakes out four unshakeable principles for conservatives to rally around:

? Respect for the Constitution
? Respect for human life
? Belief in minimalist government
? Insistence upon personal responsibility

Anyone interested in the basic differences between conservative and liberal thought will find Krohn’s writing at once compelling, informa¬tive, intelligent, and—for those who do not agree with him—in some respects controversial. Defining Conservatism is a must-read for anyone who is interested in the basic principles upon which the United States was founded, and perhaps most importantly, for anyone who is concerned with the future of this country.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
William Bennet
“Jonathan Krohn is a force of nature. Defining Conservatism is a real accomplishment, and it will raise many serious questions, the kind any country that takes politics seriously should raise.”

Newt Gingrich
“Limited government and natural rights, not government expansionism, are the surest way to freedom and prosperity. Krohn reminds Americans young and old of these core principles of conservative philosophy.”

Mike Gallagher, nationally syndicated radio host 
“Any time I am depressed about the state of our country or the future of the modern conservative movement, I consider two words: Jonathan Krohn. If America’s future leadership includes this smart-as-a-whip phenom, we’re going to be just fine.”

Rich Lowry, Editor of National Review
“I am asked all the time about rising young conservatives. Well, here’s one! Jonathan Krohn makes a vigorous defense of our conservative principles.”

I was taken aback by the intellectual stimulation of Defining Conservatism. I would read a few pages and put the book down to assimilate all that I had read. This young man, Jonathan Krohn, is a historical and political genius. He has put his finger on the very pulse of our nation which he loves. May everyone who reads this book have their eyes and hearts opened to truth and solutions to our nation's woes. And may there be someone (or several someones) who will pick up the torch of our founding fathers and run with it.

"defining conservatism" is a very remarkable book that is very hard to put down. the arthur has done a great job setting the record straight just what republicans need to win there country back and win their elections. this bestseller is a special blueprint that outlines what is needed to do for the goverment to get their act back together and for the voters to have there values back. what the writer spells out what needs to be done is to have respect for the constution and respect for life and responsibility and the goverment getting out of our lifes. too many politicans dont want to take a stand for values or principles this shows what we need to look for in the upcoming elections great gift idea for family and friends.
