Overview

Including representative journals for the 20th and late 19th centuries, this book profiles the most significant conservative journals of the past century. From the rise of industrial capitalism, when laissez-faire conservatives praised bountiful America, to the end of the Cold War, these journals have covered a variety of topics from differing, sometimes even contradictory, points of view. Yet they speak to the richness and comprehensiveness of the conservative press in America. Together they provide a focused history of conservative thought in 20th Century America. Along with the companion volume on the 18th and 19th Centuries, the book provides a valuable resource for students of the conservative press in America.

Covering a variety of disparate journals, the volume arranges them both chronologically and in sections reflecting the themes covered. Politics, individualism, isolationism, anti-Communism, the New Right, neoconservatism, and public policy are featured in four of the sections, while journals examining the issues of religious conservatism appear in sections devoted to Orthodox Protestant and Catholic journals. Yet another section focuses on journals dealing with literary and cultural topics. The remaining sections examine libertarianism, traditionalist perspectives, and extreme right-wing publications. Each section is unified with an introductory essay exploring the connecting themes and issues.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
To many radio talk-show hosts of course, conservative press makes about as much sense as pygmy giants, but here historians and political scientists examine 65 journals as a representative sample of the genre published in the US during the 20th century, including some that began earlier during the rise of industrial capitalism when laissez-faire conservatives sang hymns to American bounty. Most of the journals are monthly or quarterly, but some important weeklies are also included. The arrangement is by orientation, such as religious from fundamentalist to evangelical, Catholic and Episcopal, literary reviews, old-right isolationist, libertarian, extreme rightist, anticommunist, intellectual and traditionalist, and neoconservatist. Only names and titles are indexed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
