Liesl SchillingerThe purpose of Anderson's book is subtle and -- in spite of its just-folks pretenses -- intellectual: claiming cultural territory for conservatives not by seizing it outright but by crawling gingerly across it, inch by inch, with his arm over his head, as if a liberal weenie might jump out and clobber him at any moment. By all appearances, he wants to seem reasonable, and his book tries to maintain a tone of genial detachment. But it also puts forward a deeply partisan argument: the American right is more reasonable than the American left and, what's more, conservatives are still being suppressed by liberal bullies.
