Overview

In each chapter, a commentator of international prestige explores the meaning and implications of one of the defining principles of conservatism. Margaret Thatcher celebrates courage, particularly as it was displayed by President Reagan. Clarence Thomas reveals how his grandfather instilled character in the midst of poverty. Midge Decter reflects on the madness of a society that undermines the family. George Will explains the misunderstood meaning of republican leadership. Readers will come away from these witty and provocative essays seeing our foundational principles in a new way.

About the Author
As James Q. Wilson points out in his essay on human nature, the facts of history suggest that the natural tendency of man is not toward democracy. And in our day, with freedom and self-government apparently in global ascendancy, Leadership for America is a useful reminder that democracy thrives only in societies whose people and institutions cultivate certain principles-courage, character, self-government, responsibility, family, enterprise, truth, patriotism, leadership, freedom, faith, the rule of law, strength, and competition.

These essays originated in a nation-wide lecture series celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Heritage Foundation, America's pre-eminent public policy institute.


—Edwin J. Feulner Jr., president of the Heritage Foundation and publisher of its journal Policy Review, directs the scholarship, analysis, and writing at the heart of the conservative movement. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh and an MBA from Wharton. Dr. Feulner is the author of two previous books and a widely syndicated newspaper column, and he is the editor of The March of Freedom: Modern Classics of Conservative Thought (Spence Publishing, 1998).

    Conservative Principles

    I enjoyed the book very much. It gave me a sense of hope that there is still time to change America before it sinks into irreversible moral decadence.
